The New Athenian is our attempt to understand, diagnose and solve problems in education today. We are a teachers, students and professionals exhausted by the excuses of our peers. Although ambitious, we want to provide a well thought alternative to current education processes and solve these problems.
Much of our education system and it’s processes derive from centuries old techniques. Those generally harken to the father of Western thought – Socrates. We want to propel these into the 21st century with innovative approaches Socrates couldn’t even dream about.
