Presented at:
SCL Conference 2015

ABSTRACT:

Both David Hicks (Norms and Nobility) and Mortimer Adler (The Paideia Proposal) encouraged educators to wrestle with the application of the belief that “the best education for the best is the best education for all.” Russ Gregg will share his story of how God led him to love his neighbors by starting Hope Academy, a classical, Christian school, serving 400 students in the inner-city of Minneapolis.
