Not Trivial: How Studying the Traditional Liberal Arts Can Set You Free

Not Trivial: How Studying the Traditional Liberal Arts Can Set You Free

Education for freedom, not for slavery

Back in colonial days, young women with little more than a primary school education had great success in teaching reading, while using nothing but the New England Primer and the Holy Bible. Meanwhile, in the South it became illegal to teach any black people to read and write. Today, despite having college-educated teachers in well-equipped schools, millions of children are still failing to learn to read. What went wrong? This book explains how some wealthy philanthropists worked to dumb down the schools. This attack on the schools is nothing less than attack on democracy. In this book, Laurie Endicott Thomas explains how to get a good education for your self and your children, even if your local public school is not good.
