Educating for Liberty: Preparing Students for the Demands of Self-Government -- Peter J. Leithart

'Educational questions are always political because they express an institutionally embodied vision of ourselves. And education is an especially charged political issue because educational systems explicitly aim to propel the values of a political community into another generation.’ Peter Leithart argues that a genuine ‘education for liberty’ should be ‘an education in love . . . that trains and guides students to love what is true, good and beautiful’.
