Don’t Know Much About Liturgy, Don’t Know Much Theology - Marian E. Crowe

Almost every year since 1989, I have been teaching the Arts and Letters Core Course at the University of Notre Dame, an introduction to the liberal arts curriculum that is required of all undergraduates in the College of Arts and Letters. What I have discovered suggests something pretty surprising: Although 85 percent of Notre Dame undergraduates identify themselves as Catholics, very few of them either know much about or understand even the most basic Catholic teachings.  Read more...

Dorm Brothel - Vigen Guroian

Nineteen sixty-six, the year in which Walker Percy's The Last Gentleman was published, is also the year I entered as a first-yearman at the University of Virginia. We did not stoop to the State U level of referring to ourselves as freshmen, sophomores, and such — not at "The University." We were all men at U.Va. — "gentlemen," we were told.   Read more...

Down but Not Out in Catholic Suburbia - William McGurn

Tim Busch has an answer to the epidemic of closing Catholic schools. And it has nothing to do with vouchers.  Read more...

Drug Education - William Kilpatrick

Like so many other drug education programs, Quest is a feelings-based program operating on the dubious assumption that morality is a by-product of "feeling good about yourself." Critics of the feelings based therapeutic approach claim that while it may be useful in therapy, it has no place in drug education.  Read more...

Educating for Character in the Sexual Domain - Thomas Lickona

Before the sexual revolution, the societal norm was to treat sex as a serious matter, requiring prudent moral boundaries that channel this powerful drive in ways that benefit, rather than hurt, the individual, family, and society.  More recently, popular culture has made sex seem like a casual thing.  But in truth, as growing evidence makes clear, sex is an act that is full of consequences.  That is a good reason to save it for marriage, and a good reason for character educators to support that goal.  Read more...

Educating for Character in the Sexual Domain - references - Thomas Lickona

The references used in "Educating for Character in the Sexual Domain" by Thomas Lickona can be found here.  Read more...

Educating in the Jesuit Tradition - Robert Spitzer, S.J.

Frequently our students come into the university domain thinking that all opinions are equally valid. This view has threatened the intellectual development of students since the time of Socrates because it allows students to think that incomplete, illogical, and nonsystematic thought is “good enough.” Unfortunately, it never is.  Read more...

Educating in Virtue - JAMES STENSON

Children growing up today are headed toward some formidable challenges.  Read more...

Education after the culture wars - Diane Ravitch

Diane Ravitch's blockbuster expose and best selling book, “The Language Police: How Pressure Groups Restrict What Students Learn”, originated with this essay for the Summer 2002 issue of Dædalus.   Read more...

Education and the Individual - Richard M. Weaver

The greatest school that ever existed, it has been said, consisted of Socrates standing on a street corner with one or two interlocutors. If this remark strikes the average American as merely a bit of fancy, that is because education here today suffers from an unprecedented amount of aimlessness and confusion.  Read more...

Education language: a lesson in confusion - Julie Smyth

‘Edspeak’ baffles parents. One example, “Engage in the process of reflection” — translation: think. Jeffrey Mirel, education historian at the University of Michigan’s education faculty, says Edspeak is a language that, similar to the code among doctors or lawyers, is meant to be exclusive.  Read more...

Education reform - David Warren

I am luckier than most North Americans, having benefited at formative moments in my childhood from attending backward private schools.  Read more...

Encyclicals aren't just for Theologians - Karna Swanson

High school seniors are being challenged with Caritas in VeritateRead more...

Enough Already with Kid Gloves - Christina Hoff Sommers

Purple is replacing red as the color of choice for teachers. Why, you may ask? It seems that educators worry that emphatic red corrections on a homework assignment or test can be stressful, demeaning — even "frightening" for a young person.  Read more...

Evangelizing Young Adults - The Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap.

Over the past five decades, we've moved from a culture permeated by religious faith to a culture that seems increasingly indifferent or cynical toward religion in general and Christianity in particular.    Read more...

Even atheists should read the Bible - Reverend William Ingram

Recently, I was asked to speak at a local mother’s group. I am a minister, but as it was not a church-based gathering, the organizers had asked me to address the topic of the spiritual life of kids in as “non-religious” a manner as possible.  Read more...

Everyday Graces: A Child's Book of Good Manners - Karen Santorum

Karen Santorum writes that this anthology "grew out of the frustration of not being able to find a book on manners that instructs through stories rather than by rules of dos and don'ts." Each of her selections has been tried and tested on her own children, and each is introduced and concluded by her own thoughtful commentary. The result is an informality and intimacy that is inviting and infectious.   Read more...

Examination of Conscience — for teenagers - Deacon Douglas McManaman

An examination of conscience especially pertinent to teenagers.   Read more...

Faculty Clubs and Church Pews - William J. Stuntz

The past few months have seen a lot of talk about red and blue America, mostly by people on one side of the partisan divide who find the other side a mystery. It isn't a mystery to me, because I live on both sides.  Read more...

Faith and Therapy - WILLIAM KILPATRICK

The therapeutic mode of understanding society and identity is now so integral to modern life that some psychologists predict it will eventually triumph over all other modes, that psychology is destined to provide the frame of reference by which all other beliefs and commitments will be judged.  Read more...

Faith for the Next Generation - Donald DeMarco

"If there is one thing you could tell your parents, what would that be?" This question was directed by a TV hostess to a teenage girl. The girl’s face gleamed at the chance of being a parent to her parents and being given permission to tell them exactly what they needed to be told.  Read more...

Faith on Campus - Robert Early

Do you think college today is a faith-friendly place? That university culture is free of anti-Christian bias? That your child's teachers are pure seekers of truth with no axes to grind? If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you.  Read more...
