BS Core English Syllabi
Hello. First time poster. My DS (assuming that means "Dear Son") is a rising eighth grader considering various boarding schools for high school. Which, if any, of the NE boarding schools continue to stress in their core English classes the Western Canon as it might have been known in decades past, and which have moved almost totally to different types of literature? Much appreciation for any opinions and insight.7 replies
