Hillsdale’s Barney Charter Schools….another possible solution to public education

Thanks to Don Heuer, another Lobbyist for Citizens, for providing us with an email received from Larry P. Arnn, President of Hillsdale College…..

Dear Don,

I hope your day is going well. You understand, as do I, that the process of educating begins when children are very young. The capacity to know, think, feel, and act is not fully formed in small children, therefore we must be careful to shape it for our children to develop into responsible adults.

As it has since 1844, Hillsdale teaches college-level students using a rigorous classical liberal arts education at our main campus in Michigan. However, as part of our mission to preserve the blessings of liberty nationwide, we offer resources to K-12 schools, especially charter schools, who pursue the same rigorous, classical education.

That’s why Hillsdale launched the Barney Charter School Initiative—an undertaking that is crucial to the future of our nation. To be successful, public education in America must be built on a foundation of classical liberal arts learning—the kind of learning best suited to a free society and most needed for its preservation. This kind of education used to be common in America, but in recent decades has been replaced with the current, failing Progressive model of education.

Hillsdale’s Barney Charter School Initiative aims to reverse this trend by the founding of classical charter schools, aiming to launch 50 schools by 2020. The curriculum emphasizes the core disciplines of math, science, history, and language arts, followed by attention to music, art, and foreign languages. These classical K-12 schools focus on essential skills and knowledge, employ traditional teaching methods, and understand the importance of history and civics.

This initiative is one of the best ways to invest in our nation’s future—and it is up to Americans like us who understand the importance of education, to take the lead in returning excellence to our public K-12 schools—for the sake of our children and grandchildren—and for our nation.

We recently put together a beautiful new video about the Barney Charter School Initiative, and I want you to see it. You will be moved when you see the impact these schools are having on young people, their families, and their communities.
