  1. There are a handful of small colleges (most notably St. John's College in Maryland and New Mexico, Thomas Aquinas College in California) in the US that have abandoned the trend of large universities toward vocational education. These small colleges provide genuine liberal education to their students in the classical sense as described by President Wilson above. Many of them use the "Great Books" curriculum developed by Dr. Adler at the U. of Chicago in the 1920s. Your readers should look into the curricula and pedagogies of these schools if they're interested.
