In this three-part series, Dr. Brett Salkeld and Dr. John Jalsevac, headmaster of Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic School in Peterborough, Ontario discuss the growing popularity of Classical education and its distinct approach to student formation and education.

Show Snippet: "One of the things about the Socratic method that I think is so important is that when you're using it well, it indicates to the student that you think they're important, that you think their views matter and that you think that you're not just there to pound stuff into their head. You are there to elicit, to draw them into a process where they begin to see and experience the pleasure of the chase after truth. William Butler Yeats famously said that education is not the filling of a bucket, it's the lighting of a fire, and so I think that that's the animating idea in many classical schools."
