A Thomas Jefferson Education: Teaching a Generation of Leaders for the Twenty-First Century
Why I recommend: Thomas Jefferson invented the public school system yet he never allowed his children to use it, he taught them at home. That fact alone speaks volumes about the quality of education YOU can provide your child. I love this book, even as a former public school teacher I finally understood that the public education system is a factory and is intended to be a factory that produces a product...a basically educated citizen. If what you want for your child is to be another cog in the machine, choose public school, if you want other options for your child choose this book.
