St. Midas Goes to Print!

The September 8th issue of Commonweal includes my article "St. Midas's Prep: What Catholic Schools Can Learn from Fitzgerald." The article was published on the magazine's website last fall, and at that time I wrote two follow-up posts to the issues I raised:

"More on St. Midas, Part 1: Identifying the Problem"

"More on St. Midas, Part 2: Three Suggestions for a Return to the Humanities"

Also, see my review of William Deresiewicz's book Excellent Sheep, which I draw upon in the Commonweal article.

Thanks to Commonweal for getting it to print! My review of a recent biography of F. Scott should be forthcoming in their magazine as well.
