For my undergraduate degree I had the privilege of studying in a "Great Books" program at Concordia University's Liberal Arts College in Montreal. This bachelor of arts degree in "Western Society and Culture" is one of a hundred Great Books curricula in North America, Europe and Asia. The Concordia program was modelled on the Great Books movement which began at Columbia University in New York in 1921 and which now constitutes that university's Core Curriculum.

Grown-ups going back to high school: Education is a right for people of all ages

This week millions of Canadian students are returning to high school but they aren't all young people. A large number of adults will also be returning to high school.

For these students, earning top grades has little to do with bragging rights, scoring the keys to the family vehicle on weekends or attracting the attention of the cute guy/girl sitting over in the far aisle. For many adult students, returning to high school is a game changer, marking a reclamation of dreams, dignity and stability.
