It seems like that might be an obvious statement to most Christian institutions or organizations (Hello ACSI), but Wilson looks for the solution in the past, and doesn't try to create his own generic version of how to "fix" education. That is what I appreciate about this book, it suggests that the way it used to be done (education) actually was pretty good and that it should be brought back and basically just modernized--not overhauled like it was during the late 19th century with people like John Dewey. It also has the original essay by Dorthy Sayers which is great as well. Worth the read if you want to critically consider education as a parent or teacher. Also the book by John Milton Gregory, "The Seven Laws of Teaching", is worth a read if you are an educator looking for ways to improve (or just to grow your understanding of teaching).
