How To Transform Catholic Education

Recommended reading for Catholic educators, this book is very much in the vein of Stratford Caldecott's excellent books such as Beauty in the Word. The emphasis is on *how* to transform Catholic education, so the books have suggestions on how to implement the Catholic vision. I think Peachey is especially strong here when he talks about work, using people like Josef Pieper and E. F. Schumacher to argue for the Catholic school as oasis of leisure in the middle of a desert of utilitarian and positivist ideology!

  1. Dear Matthew: I don't know if you are aware that the author, Roy Peachey, is a parishioner here in Caterham these days, as once you were. And as was Ernst Schumacher before either of you. Hope you're well. S.
