Even though Schuman and Estess disagree on what is appropriate for publication in the Forum for Honors, they are both correct. Schuman offers an orthodox view, describing marks of good scholarship and suggesting topics on Honors education suitable for scholarly work. Estess, perhaps because he writes in response to Schuman, is more mischievous and proposes that the Forum for Honors should for a while accept no articles on Honors education and in this interim should become a journal of interest to the liberally educated reader. In my opinion, both these opinions should be incorporated in the editorial policy of this journal.
