If you're looking for a schedule and/or lesson plans, you won't find it here. What you will find is encouragement to do what is best for your children and their education with details of how other people have made it work for them. The whole point of "leadership education" is that it is truly student-centered with the goal of allowing every child to reach his highest potential. (Please note that most schools are looking for children to reach a desired level of "mastery" which is not necessarily that child's best.)

One of the other reviewers complains that the authors are not really promoting "inspire not require" because if children in the "scholar" phase don't do a certain number of hours of study, you should have them do chores. The chores, however, are not a punishment. Children who are not in the "scholar" phase are expected to be contributing members of the household by doing age-appropriate chores. If they spend their days studying, however, they get a break on their household duties. So the chores aren't a punishment, one of the rewards from deep study is that you are freed from your normal responsibilities. Just like we give our spouses a break when a job or illness means there's less time available to help around the house.

I found it to be inspiring and helpful, but it is not a blue-print, it does not have a curriculum list and the expectation is that you, as the parent, will do a lot of heavy lifting to help your children get the education they deserve to become their best.

I am a new homeschooling parent and the TJed books so far have been great! The ideals make sense and I am really looking forward for our educational journey together!

This book is a perfect "how to" companion to the first book Thomas Jefferson Education, however, it also can stand alone. I LOVE all of DeMille's work and this book does not disappoint. It includes the psychology, philosophy and the steps to get your family "off the conveyor belt" of education and experience the results of a balanced, close and principle-based family with kids that are prepared to lead! I am a former public educator who tried for years without training or an example to implement Leadership-type Education unsuccessfully. Our education system is not set up for our children to achieve greatness in the world. Thomas Jefferson Education is IT!

Changed my life and our home. Steven Covey says to "begin with the end in mind". This book is powerful because it covers the beginning, the middle, and the end of homeschooling so there's no stress!

The how-to guide for the Thomas Jefferson Education method. Tons of good practical material here. A must for anyone who wants to pursue this method, even if they don't follow every guideline.
