Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Heading home

I went up to Fort Collins yesterday to visit Terrence and Jennifer Moore (and their two month old boy Samuel) at Ridgeview Classical Schools. It was great to see them both. They have been there for four
years, and while I knew that the school (K-12) was terrific, it was good to actually see the place. It is a public charter school with a great curriculum, it follows the Hirsch Core Knowledge Sequence in grades K-8. There are about 600 students in the school, and they are impressive. It is amazing what can be done with a good curriculum and a fine faculty. Education at its best. If you don’t know the place, have a look. I’m flying home this morning.

That Terence Moore is an impressive writer and apparently, gentleman. I think you are lucky to know such a fine mind and educator. I am joining Providence Classical School in Williamsburg, VA, in the autumn and hope that it is half as impressive as Ridgeview seems to be. Parents are tired of innovation that becomes passe after three years - they want to return to basics and have their children challenged. Well, many of them, at least. If Mr. Moore is ever in Williamsburg or Ashland, I hope to meet him.

If I had known you were in town I would have bought you a drink.
