A Thomas Jefferson Education: Teaching a Generation of Leaders for the Twenty-First Century

Update: Apparently the author is LDS and the book has some major Mormon undertones. I, myself, am not LDS…and should still be able to appreciate the good ideas about mentoring and reading the classics (which I do!), so why did my cheeks burn when I learned the connection?

By Oliver Van DeMille. This book is blowing my mind! Jason and I have had some issues with the virtual charter school we’ve been using for Isaac’s kindergarten year, and this book articulates our concerns so perfectly.

We will be going to straight homeschool next year, and forging our own way. Well, not our own way. We’ll be lead by the inspiration of this and many more books and community resources.

    I have read this book too….Catholic here, not LDS. I have found the principles overlay any faith tradition. I’ve blogged quite a bit about TJEd. If you check out the topics in my right side bar you can select all my entries about A Thomas Jefferson Education.
    Nice to “meet you”
