Welcome new members! Thank you for your contributions. Just a reminder to keep it as much as possible to information that will help other members to inform Catholic decision makers about classical education and Common Core. 

That said, here's the latest on the CCE blog from a Catholic teacher to the Secretariat of Catholic Education for the USCCB.

New on the CCE website!
New CCE blogger Steven Jonathan is beginning a series of blog posts breaking down letters from Catholic education leaders on #CommonCore – pointing out their flaws, inconsistencies, untruths, misrepresentation, and mischaracterizations. Check out the first in the series, a breakdown of the letter from California superintendents.

While technology is not necessarily a bad thing – nor is its use necessarily contrary to a classical education – Sean Fitzpatrick, headmaster of Gregory the Great Academy, makes the case for a school without screens:

"Excesses of technique dull the desire to see, and thereby the ability to learn. This immoderation occurs when the yearning for knowledge instead seeks titillation: enjoying the act of seeing rather than what is seen.  Such “concupiscence of the eyes,” as St. Augustine called it, grows in its threat in proportion to the outpouring upon the sense of sight, whether through Facebook, television, or the inescapable commercial culture."
