Heritage hosts Core conversation

Last Thursday, I got to talk to Becky Norton Dunlop and a group of like-minded folks at the Heritage Foundation about my new book, The Core. Here's how they described the book:

In the past, correct spelling, the multiplication tables, the names of the state capitals and the American Presidents were basics that all children were taught in school. Today, many children graduate without this essential knowledge.

Leigh Bortins, a leading figure in the homeschooling community, is having none of it.

In The Core, Bortins gives parents the tools and methodology to implement a rigorous, thorough, and broad curriculum based on the classical model.

Now you can watch the video of our conversation here:

Wow Leigh. Every time I hear the classical model from your mouth it clicks a little more. I've read "The Core", now I'm just waiting for the book on audio!! :)
