Liberal Education versus “Common Core”

“A mass culture is a culture which can be appropriated by the meanest capacities without any intellectual and moral effort whatsoever and at a very low monetary price.
Liberal education is the counterpoison to mass culture, to the corroding effects of mass culture, to its inherent tendency to produce nothing but “specialists without spirit or vision and voluptuaries without heart.”
Liberal education reminds those members of a mass democracy who have ears to hear, of human greatness.”
drops mic.
Leo Strauss, What is Liberal Education
