There's a double standard in schools that all of us should address.
Growing up and attending public school, I remember being in a European history course and being told that the Middle Ages were a time of darkness. Finally, with the Renaissance, and more importantly, the Reformation, it was said that “Reason” (written many times on the board with a capital letter) prevailed.
Of course, something seemed a bit off about this historical narrative. I was aware of the medieval university system which featured giants like Saint Albert and Saint Thomas Aquinas. I was also aware that Luther’s 95 Theses were not so much about “reason” but about a theological dispute over scriptural interpretation.
