Orthodox Education

Remove "Saint" from Thomas Aquinas, as he's not an Orthodox saint.
For most people in the western world, schools are the place to go to get educated, and then afterwards perhaps tech, or college, or university. This includes education for service in the Church as ministers, [[priest]]s, [[monk]]s, [[nun]]s, lay leaders, and lay assistants.
This method of education is derived from the great centres of learning in western Europe, both the [[monasticism|monastic]] centres, and their offshoots, the universities. All were profoundly influenced by the thinking and practice of the Dominicans and their greatest educational theorist and educator, Saint [[Thomas Aquinas]]. The method which developed out of his teachings is known as the Scholastic method.
The Scholastic method is still the underlying philosophical base for almost all education in Western Europe and satellite nations.
