Notre Dame is burning! This was devastating news. I am sure it was more tragic in person. Why were so many around the world affected by the news? Why did it cause me to cry? In part it is because I was privileged enough to have visited the grand cathedral during a senior-high trip. It is not something the average person has an opportunity to do though.

We have added a new forum that features six Scholé Muses and is based on their presentations and training aimed at classical homeschoolers. You can view some 20 presentations by the Muses on ClassicalU here and at no charge.
Each of the Muses are veteran classical homeschool educators and leaders of homeschooling co-ops. You can interact with their presentations and ideas (and with the Muses themselves) on our new Scholé Muses forum.
In case you did not know it, the old site ClassicalEducator.com has been shut down and that domain name now points folks to ClassicalUForum. Many of you have come over from ClassicalEducator.com--and so welcome!
While ClassicalEducator.com served a good purpose for several years, this forum provides some excellent and in several cases superior features for the conversation we hope to foster surrounding classical education. Thanks for being with us!
We are seeking up to three forum curators who:
Are college-educated, good writers, and who have been engaged in classical education for at least five years
Would be able to write five posts weekly asking questions and prompting conversation across the forum
Could focus on curating a few sub forums, while also ranging outward to prompt discussion in other areas
We are able to pay curators $50 per month, paid at the end of each month by check.

Second, none of us are able to renew this tradition by ourself; we must converse because we have gaps and holes, and because we can go nowhere meaningful alone. We learn best together.
For a while now we have su
