  • The Liberal Arts Tradition: A Philosophy of Christian Classical Education, Ravi Jain and Kevin Clark (Very difficult, but excellent)

  • The Closing of the American Mind, Allen Bloom
  • Why Johnny Can’t Tell Right from Wrong, William Kilpatrick

For a deeper understanding of our culture’s parenting problems that contribute to educational and social problems (for education is deeply related to child-raising), we recommend the following books:
