In this episode, Lee J. Strang, John W. Stoepler Professor of Law & Values at the University of Toledo College of Law, discusses his book "Originalism's Promise: A Natural Law Account of the American Constitution," which is published by Cambridge University Press. Strang begins by explaining what he means by "originalism," and why he thinks the different versions of originalism are ultimately consistent with each other. He argues that courts should engage in "good-faith" originalism when interpreting the Constitution, and reflects on how that is consistent with good governance and the common good. And he suggests that this kind of originalism is consistent with how people actually think about constitutional values. This episode was hosted by Brian L. Frye, Spears-Gilbert Associate Professor of Law at the University of Kentucky College of Law. Frye is on Twitter at @brianlfrye. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

The mission of the Barney Charter School Initiative is to promote the founding of classical charter schools and excellence in their teaching and operations, to the end that public-school students may be educated in the liberal arts and sciences and receive instruction in the principles of moral character and civic virtue.The Barney Charter School Initiative is a project of Hillsdale College devoted to the education of young Americans. Through this initiative, the College supports the launch of K-12 charter schools. These schools will train the minds and improve the hearts of young people through a rigorous, classical education in the liberal arts and sciences, with instruction in the principles of moral character and civic virtue.Reform of American public education, to be successful and good, must be built on a foundation of classical liberal arts learning—the kind of learning best suited to a free society and most needed for its preservation. The Barney Charter School Initiative is an important step in that direction.To advance the founding of classical charter schools, Hillsdale College works with select school-founding groups of local citizens who care deeply about education, who plan to apply for a charter, and who prove themselves capable of starting and governing a school. When a founding group’s interests and abilities are a good match with the Barney Charter School Initiative, BCSI will assist in creating and implementing the school’s academic program, providing the curriculum design and teacher training. This support, along with guidance on the shaping of a vibrant and ennobling school culture, will provide the foundation for these new schools to promote a liberal and civic education in America’s public schools.This initiative is made possible by a major grant from the Barney Family Foundation and matching gifts from other friends of Hillsdale College.For more info email Lee at:LEESTRANG2@GMAIL.COMwww.hillsdale.edu/educational-outreach/barney-charter-school-initiative/
