It’s the Culture Stupid

Restructuring classroom practices and curricular contents is easy compared to the challenge of reordering the ethos of a school and of the lives of its members. But if education is the reorientation of the affections, then the texture of everyday life (in school and out) may be more definitive than the content in books, lectures, and conversations. This seminar will examine the role of cultural style in forming students and offer some ideas and principles for sustaining the healthiest cultural ecosystems.
