The Art of Education: Reclaiming Your Family, Community, and Self.
This book argues that the American school system is based on a false definition of education that leads to false goals. It explains the need for home schooling and describes the changes that must occur in child-rearing practices in order to shore up America's moral and spiritual fiber. Sixteen chapters are based on the notion that education is an art instead of a business. The chapters offer suggestions for examining priorities, getting started, and creating a family personal education philosophy. The book debunks five myths about family-centered education and describes the benefits to parents, children, and the community. Appendices contain a list of home-school "alumni," notes, and a list of resources. An index is included. (LMI)
