We've known for a long time that it was the extraordinary, far-reaching vision of America's founding fathers that produced the freest and most powerful nation on earth. What we have not understood, however, is the rigorous educational experience that gave them such remarkable vision. The loss of that knowledge poses a 'clear and present danger' to our generation, because liberty cannot perpetuate itself. A Thomas Jefferson Education tells us how to see, in our own day, exactly what the Founders saw - and thus how to safeguard and build upon what they created. It's not a quick or painless perscription, and Oliver DeMille doesn't sugar-coat it. But he does show us, honestly and authoritatively, the price we must pay to remain a free people. If you're willing to find out what that blessing will cost you and your children, read this book --Andrew M. Allison, Jefferson Biographer, Author of The Real Thomas Jefferson
As a high school teacher and administrator, I have yearned for a different approach to learning: and Oliver Demille shows us how education should really take place - with classics and mentors, where students must dig it out for themselves with a little guidance. It may take a whole generation to throw off the bad habits, but let's get started. --Earl Taylor, Principal, Heritage Academy, Charter High School
