Modern Education Should Go Medieval -- a good article about Thomas Aquinas College.

After visiting colleges and universities across the nation, the Princeton Review considers TAC to be the best classroom experience in America, and there is no secret why. Rather than channeling their students into one particular field of study, the college forms the students’ ability to analyze and think, and then immerses them in the writing of the great thinkers....At Thomas Aquinas College, learning is done for the sake of learning, and this makes all the difference. Truth is not pursued for the sake of finding a job and making heaps of money, but for its own sake. The students at TAC delight in training their intellect to perceive the core of things. The end result? Grad schools and companies clamor for TAC alumni, because they know the school properly trains students to think rather than respond.
