Elevating the Great Books Anew

Original Article - Teach humanities to college students

Summary goes here!

I need think about this. Of cause, I don't have the humanities education of the Western. But so does those US students that not go through the college education. Are we saying that these people are of lower rank? In what way, I asked.

I tend to think if these things are deem so important, they should be taught at K12. If not, I can see where JLE's comments come from.

Personally, I do not deny the importance of these "things". But I wonder if reading literature is the right way of teaching it, let alone what list of books to read. I wondered isn't this the job of the K12 social studies?
