Dr. Luke Murray, headmaster at the new Chesterton Academy of St. Philip Neary, shares his vision for Classical Education in Kansas City.
“…in a classical approach to education, you read primary sources. So you don’t read textbooks that are just laying out the dates and the facts… rather you’re reading great works of literature, and then you’re discussing it. So rather than sitting in rows and everybody has to listen to the teacher, the teacher simply asks the question about the text and then the students themselves debate it with the teacher, not spoon feeding the answer…and what this does is it forces the students first to really think deeply.” – Dr. Luke Murray, Headmaster at Chesterton Academy of St. Philip Neary
