Oddly, Mr. Dreher doesn't define the Benedict Option. Instead he offers vague complaints and impractical solutions such as this: "Because public education in America is neither ordered, nor religiously informed, nor able to form an imagination devoted to Western civilization, it is time for all Christians to pull their children out of the public schools." He offers only "Classical Christian" education as an alternative and admits that such education is not currently available.
