Schole Schools and Homeschools: Why a School Without Leisure Is No School At All


Christopher Perrin


Our word school comes from the Greek word “schole” which means leisure, refreshing conversation and activity – or restful learning. Ironically, modern, American education is virtually anything but restful and so in a profound sense many American schools have ceased to be schools at all. In this seminar, we will trace the tradition of schole and explore how critical it is that we recover restful learning and return schole to our schools. We will also spend time discussing the practical ways that restful learning can be implemented in our schools and homeschools, from establishing restful (liturgical) routines and rhythms to selecting books and pedagogy that enhance contemplation and rest rather than cheat them.
