|The Homeschooling Revolution
Anyone familiar with the manifest problems and lively debate associated with the public school crisis in America will profit from reading this book. This is an excellent overview of both the home schooling movement itself and a good discussion of the primary issues surrounding the problems and prospects confronting anyone daring to pull their kids away from the public school system to attempt to educate them at home.
|The Way They Learn
An excellent book on the learning styles of all children AND adults. It is written so that parents can understand it and begin to identify and search out the strengths of both their children and themselves. Ms. Tobias is careful to warn parents of the dangers of having children inaccurately labled as having a learning disability, when in fact it may be that the child simply has a different learning style than both his teacher and/or parent.
|Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling
A highly praised bestseller for over a decade, Dumbing Us Down is a radical treatise on public education that concludes that compulsory government schooling does little but teach young people to follow orders like cogs in a machine. John Gatto was a teacher in New York City's public schools for over 30 years and is a recipient of the New York State Teacher of the Year award.
