Classical Education
Rethinking Educational Philosophy with Margarita Mooney Suarez: Why Teachers Don't Have to be Bureaucratic Therapeutic Reformers

Classical Education

About Our GuestMargarita Mooney Suarez (Clayton)* is an Associate Professor in the Department of Practical Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary. She founded The Scala Foundation in 2016 and continues to serve as Scala's Executive Director. Scala Foundation's vision is to restore meaning and purpose to American culture by focusing on the intersection of artists (culture creators), liberal arts education, and religion (liturgy, personal prayer, theology).NotesIn this episode, Trae and Margarita Mooney Suarez (Clayton) take a closer look at the philosophical underpinning of modern education. The late American philosopher, psychologist, and educational reformer John Dewey maintains a massive influence on how contemporary schools and families think about learning and the role of the school and its teachers. Dewey's philosophy of education, while seemingly positive on some points, is ultimately grounded in the denial of the spiritual needs of students and a rejection of tradition. As a result, Dewey's views have contributed to the rise of beliefs and practices that effectively turn teachers into little more than bureaucratic therapeutic reformers, cut off from tradition with little to no approaches to teaching outside the scientific method applied across subjects. Today, most schools strip students of traditional beliefs and practices and expect them to build a future on no sure foundation. If we want to undo the influence of Dewey and restore a common unity between the church, the household, and the school, we will need some help. Enter Jacques Maritain and Luigi Giussani. * Margarita married David Clayton after this recording and now shares his last name.  Some topics and ideas in this episode include: Deep Rot in Our Education System  The Influence of Philosophy on Education  Jacques Maritain and Luigi Giussani's Concerns with John Dewey  Teachers as Beuarocratic Therapeutic Reformers Truth and The Scientific Method    All Education as Moral Education  The Freedom to Choose What's Right  Teaching as an Art  Common Unity Between Household, Church, and School   Tradition and Authority  Deconstruction, Questioning, and Scepticism  Resources and Books & Mentioned In This Episode After Virtue by Alasdair MacIntyre A Common Faith by John Dewey  Letters to a Young Education Reformer by Frederick M. Hess The Crisis of Western Education by Christopher Dawson The Burnout Society by Byung-Chul Han Education at the Crossroads by Jacques Maritain The Risk of Education: Discovering Our Ultimate Destiny by Luigi Giussani  Margarita's Foundation and Books  SCALA Foundation  The Acton Institute 28th Anniversary Speech The Love of Learning: Seven Dialogues on the Liberal Arts  The Wounds of Beauty: Seven Dialogues on Art and Education _________________________________Credits:Sound Engineer: Andrew HelselLogo Art: Anastasiya CFMusic: Used with permission. cellists: Sara Sant' Ambrogio and Lexine Feng; pianist: Alyona Waldo  © 2022 Beautiful Teaching.

The NeoLiberal Round
Does My Vote Even Count? The Drive with Irene on Life, Politics & Society in America Today

This Episode is quite powerful as I met up with Irene, at the Philadelphia Airport who was travelling from L.A returning home to Deptford NJ. Irene is retired and had just visited her son in L.A. In this street vibe, Irene shares some poignant insights on L.A., Philly and Deptford NJ & How Life & Politics is Changing in America Today. In fact, although Irene resides in Deptford, she is originally from Philadelphia, but ten years ago, she moved to Deptford, NJ. Deptford NJ is a quiet, clean and relatively affluent neighborhood. Irene, who works as a partner at a Jewelry store, shared how she had recently lost her husband to COVID towards the end of the pandemic in 2021 and how it was a very sad time for her and her family as his passing was sudden. So, this trip to L.A. was supposed to help provide catharsis and therapy as she continues to grapple with the love of her life's death. Hower, while the trip to L.A. was wonderful, she critiqued that it was also disappointing, because some of the places she visited were depressing and scary compared to Beverly Hills where Tyler Perry and Adele's live whose houses, she also had the chance to visit. Moreover, she made a very recommendation to our political leaders and technocrats about how Philly is changing and that if only we could "clean up the streets... you can't just spend all that money Downtown or near the casinos".  Further, as we vote in America today for city, state and some congressional leaders, she question whether her vote counts for anything given all the deterioration and decay in certain places in America and that so much money is spent on adds and campaigns but that very little is being done to help may depressed and vulnerable places. Irene retorts, "does my vote even count?" Nevertheless, she paused a bit, sighed and said, I will vote though as it is important, in a way indicating that it was part of her civic duty. The episode with Irene was very insightful and refreshing as it provided another perspective about life in America especially in L.A., Philly and Deptford NJ from viewpoint of a retiree who is white, yet concerned about poor black/brown, vulnerable and poor communities and cities to the point that she is now questioning whether she should vote considering the ineptitude of our leaders to do anything about these communities.  Rev.

"If you drop any science out of the circle of knowledge, you cannot keep its place vacant for it; that science is forgotten; the other sciences close up, or, in other words, they exceed their proper bounds, and intrude where they have no right... no science whatever, however comprehensive it may be, but will fall largely into error, if it be constituted the sole exponent of all things in heaven and earth, and that, for the simple reason that it is encroaching on territory not its own, and undertaking problems which it has no instruments to solve." In 1854, Newman was invited to Dublin by the Catholic Bishops of Ireland to serve as rector for the newly established Catholic University of Ireland, now University College, Dublin. Though he retired after only four years, during this time he composed and delivered the lectures that would become The Idea of a University. In this third discourse, Newman examines the unavoidable consequence that Theology, if abandoned, will soon have its place usurped by one or more of the other sciences, with dire consequences both to Theology and the other sciences themselves.

In 1963 the author moved to Paris, France to study French and work in the fashion industry. In late 1965 the author moved to New York where, about four years later, a change in his religious convictions led him to a community practicing both the Old and New Testament teachings and laws of the Bible. From 1970-1975 the author served on the faculty of a local private college in Pasadena, California - teaching both modern and Biblical Hebrew to students and ministers on Sabbatical year. At the same time, the author attended classes and graduated with a B.A. degree in Liberal Arts - with a major in Theology. After graduation in 1975, and later ordination, Mr. Joseph began his service in the Field Ministry in the Pasadena area congregations.

Judith finished grad school with a passion for increasing student retention. As she spent more time — and moved up the ladder — in higher ed administration, she became equally committed to expanding access.And she did, indeed, make retention and access top priorities in positions across student affairs, development, and international education. But what appeared to be a perfect career progression on paper was not in practice. That's when Judith, for the first time, looked beyond the ivory tower for work. Within a few years in finance, she had the opportunity to transfer to investment banking, where she now relishes the quick pace of change and ability to solve complex problems. Had she not taken the time to question what she valued in her work, Judith may have never considered if careers outside of higher ed could be a better fit.Books & other resources mentionedWhat Should I Do with My Life? by Po BronsonThe Four Tendencies by Gretchen RubinLife map resourcesCheck out more from The Work SeminarVisit theworkseminar.com or find @TheWorkSeminar on social media. Sign up for The Work Seminar newsletter to receive updates straight to your inbox.Support the show
