Lately I've seen a number of articles in the news about charter schools around the country moving to a "Classical" model. This raises some interesting questions revolving around the relationship between "Classical" and "Christian," and whether a school can succeed at educating children classically without a religious foundation.
What do you think?
(Here's an interesting read that can provide fodder for discussion: https://catholiccitizens.org/views/87101/why-classical-charter-schools-cant-replace-catholic-education/)
If one takes the term "religious" broadly, then I don't think it is possible to have a classical education without religious foundation. It has never been done before in the history of man, and modern education that has sought to eliminate religious authority has jettisoned classical as well--precisely because the two cannot be separated, I'd argue.
