At a time when the American educational system is in crisis and the family is under attack, the tried-and-true principles handed down through the ages, herein called Thomas Jefferson Education, are fostering the revival of a culture of leadership and liberty.
As a result, the family is being restored to its rightful place as the basic unit of a prosperous and free society; and the prospects for American education are looking brighter than ever.
These incredibly helpful articles read, at times, like a letter from a friend, at times like an entry in a journal of Education or Child Development, and even, at times, like we’re overhearing a conversation. But in every case it is relevant, accessible, and empowering.
“The core unit of society is the family, and it is in our homes that the principles must most deeply take root and flourish. Regardless of where your children sit to learn, your home can be transformed into a Leadership Education Home, a Thomas Jefferson Education environment. This volume offers something new, something which we all need: a view of Leadership Education from many angles, from the education of toddlers to advanced adult learning. Whether you’re a parent, teacher, administrator, legislator, professor or grandparent, this book is a must.” -Vicki Jo Anderson, co-Founder of American Heritage Academy
“This book, along with A Thomas Jefferson Education, are the only two books I needed to homeschool my four children. When I started this system of education I had no idea what I was doing, then Diann’s book came along as the ‘companion’ and all was right with the world. The forms, systems and processes in this book work hand-in-glove with Oliver Demille’s original book. I recommend both books as the core system for homeschoolers wanting to raise leaders.
“Diann’s writing style and easy-going approach to homeschooling will leave you feeling totally in control and not wandering around in the dark forest of philosophy. Her systems are easy to use and her language is easy to read.” -Janine Bolon, Financial Coach, Speaker, Radio Talk Show Host, & Author of Money…It’s Not Just for Rich People!
“Save yourself some time and get this book to start applying principles and techniques of Thomas Jefferson Education that took me ten years to figure out!
“I first read A Thomas Jefferson Education almost ten years ago and since then have been incorporating techniques to apply it into my everyday homeschooling and personal education. Suffice it to say when I read this book I was nodding my head in agreement in several places.
“I love Oliver DeMille’s answer to the overwhelmed mom that empathizes with her and then inspires her(and the rest of us) in his response. Rachel DeMille and Diane Jeppson are inspiring and knowledgeable in their writing as well. The chore chart that Dianne suggests has worked well for my cousin who uses it while I work from the motivatedmoms.com chore list.” -Chen Rui
“What I love about this book is that it really breaks down HOW to do TJEd by letting you look into the lives of a TJEd family and see how all the components are implemented. I HIGHLY recommend this book if you are serious about integrating the TJEd lifestyle into your family/homeschool life. It gives descriptions of everything from how to integrate chores into your daily life with your kids to transitioning to practice scholar to spelling and more.
“All these examples have really helped me give over more to my kids and allow them the opportunities to really take charge of their education and life.” -Valerie Atwood
