The Paideia Program, An Educational Syllabus

by Mortimer J. Adler



The third of three books by Adler and the original Paideia Group, the express purpose of this book is to provide a “detailed description of a Paideia school in full operation—what is to be taught, how it is to be taught, and the various restructurings it entails or permits.” It includes a variety of essays by Paideia group members (including Jacques Barzun and Ted Sizer) on all aspects of curriculum and structure.
