Counter the Technological Encroachment into Education with the Bosco Method

In my last article, “Relativism and Devices Are Dulling Your Kids’ Minds,” I addressed the issue that technology brings to the imagination of the young mind. The desire to know and seek truth is hindered by mobile devices that effortlessly provide children with the answers that instead should be answered by their parents and teachers. I am no...

Christ’s Masculinity: A Model for Educating Boys

Ezra Pound was born in Idaho—but you wouldn’t know it to hear him speak. The American poet (1885-1972) set sail for Europe in 1908 and spent a large part of the rest of his life bouncing around the continent with an accent as strange and difficult to pin down as he was. Pound is hailed as a leader in literary modernism and was responsible for j...

How Fathers Can Fix The 2 Major Problems of Homeschooling

Because I did not grow up in a traditional parish system, complete with schools connected to the parish you attend, I don’t naturally have affection for parochial schools.  I am well aware of the good that they did and continue to do, especially in providing halfway decent education to inner-city children in a few places.  I also know, howe...

The Sexual Utilitarian Philosophy Your Kids Learn

For many teenagers, pornography is their primary source of sex education.  This is because the sex education they are getting at home and/or in school is inadequate.  They may learn about puberty, conception and birth, contraception and sexually transmitted diseases, but they learn nothing about God’s plan for sexuality and healthy relationship...

Senator Ben Sasse on How to Overcome Our Parenting Crisis

The goal of parenthood is to raise our children into adults. And as you might have noticed, we are failing miserably at this task. Senator Ben Sasse reflects on the urgency of addressing this crisis in his book, The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis—and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance (St. Martin’s, 2017). He states h...

Do You Want to be Educated?

Mr. Brian Jones There will be many of them soon, and only a few, in retrospect, will be worth listening to or reading. Of course, I am speaking of the college commencement address. Commencement speeches are delivered by individuals that a university has decided best imitates the school’s various missions. Only in rare instances does a commence...

The Ultimate Answer

“What is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything?” If you have read Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe, the answer should be humorously memorable.  The ultimate answer is 42.  Yes, this number is the key to life, the universe and everything. Even though Douglas Adams was famous fo...

Wise Men, The Nothingness of Eastern Religions, and the Somethingness of Christianity

A brilliant and valiant teacher named John Senior is continuing to be discovered by those startled by today’s shadowy darkness, especially through a newly published biography. Interestingly, Senior could be described as an apostle of shadows, not because shadows are not real but because they point to the fact that things are real. How else could ...

Purpose. Meaning. Destiny.

My conversion to the Catholic faith came about largely through the witness of one of my (public) high school teachers. He is a man of God who understands profoundly that the knowledge of Truth is the end goal of all education. There were many things my teacher said that stood out to me and remain in my memory to this day. Few of them stand out as m...

Too Good to Be True? A Historical Look at The Gospels.

At the core of Christianity is the historical reality of the Incarnation, the fact that the infinite God took on a human nature.  However, as any historian can tell you, a historical narrative is only as trustworthy as the sources from which we learn about it.  The last several centuries have seen a wave of anti-Christian historians who hold that...
