“Postfactual” education coaches students to feel good about themselves without ever memorizing facts or distinguishing truth from error. Grammar, history, and logic have been so neglected that few students ever acquire the ability to read with understanding. As the Lutheran Reformers noted 500 years ago, a re-centering of schools around the classical liberal arts can restore biblical literacy to the church and capable self-governance to the community.
