What is a Good Education?
Our topic this month is "What is a good education?". Of course we can talk about a good curriculum, but there are some deeper questions to ponder here... What is the purpose of education? Whose good is the most important? The student's? The teacher's? The state? The family? Society in general? When should it start and stop? What is the relationship between education and schooling? What is a bad education and why do some people get them?

What we're about

Inspired by Christopher Phillips' books, scores of people are meeting for these modern version of Socratic dialogue. These are intended to be group conversations which often move in a spiral, touching on topics in ways that may not be obvious at first. Our purpose is to bring back thoughtful dialogue in counterpoint to the shouting pundits of so-called debate on TV and radio. One need not be an academic or expert. We seek diversity of thought from people from all walks of life. ALL ARE WELCOME. ALL WE ASK IS THAT YOU BRING AN INQUISITIVE MIND AND A WILLINGNESS TO LISTEN.
