The CAAS Board of Directors has approved the following letter to the Board of Directors of The Paideia Institute:
We, the Board of the Classical Association of the Atlantic States, are profoundly disturbed by the multiple recent allegations concerning the Paideia Institute. These allegations describe institutional behavior and practices that are discriminatory and exploitative, especially to students, workers and interns.
While we have always supported the Paideia Institute’s energetic promotion of Classical Studies, these narratives describe an environment that we cannot endorse. At this time, we are unable to continue our support of Paideia’s programs and activities in any way.
