Google, Latin and Logic: Harmonizing Ancient Disciplines with Modern Work


Ty Rallens


We have all fielded the critique that classical education produces graduates unqualified for any job excpet teaching at classical Christian schools. On the contrary, only a curriculum embracing time-honored disciplines like rhetoric, history, and philosophy, and not endless STEM classes, could provide the leadership training our students need to become tomorrow’s inventors, entreprenours, and executives. Ty Rallens, a pupil of Andrew Kern form 1997-2001, graduate of New Saint Andrews College, and now an engineering manager at Hewlett-Packard, outlines an apologetic and a vision for refuting students’ and parents’ worries that “classical education isn’t practical” based on his own experience and the inherently human link between leadership and culture-building.
