This is an ad for a “Classical Academy” in the USA. They’re a certain kind of Christian school. Sometimes they identify as Christian, sometimes that fact is communicated through dog whistle words known to people in that particular denomination. It’s often said that education is indoctrination, usually quite loosely as often not even the purveyors of an education style are even aware that there *is* a style or philosophy they follow. [most people don’t know the philosophies or ideologies they follow or even if they do at all, as it’s “just how things are”] But what of this? What does this ad make you think and/or feel? What assumptions come to mind? What is right and what is wrong with this, if anything?
