The Art of Education

Reclaiming Your Family, Community and Self

by Linda Dobson; Forword by John Taylor Gatto

Responding to countless parents questioning how and where educational practices are leading leading their children, Linda Dobson offer thought provoking - and sometimes startling - answers in this groundbreaking new book from the award-winning Home Education Press.
Linda Dobson's basic premise is that the public school system in this country is based on a false definition of education. We are not educating our children at all. We are conditioning them. She also exposes how, and why, and who's really profiting by the arrangement.

In his foreword, respected author and educator John Taylor Gatto writes, "The actual truth is your family is necessary, irreplacable, and quite incomparable with other families (except in irrelevant ways). Inside your family orbit you are automatically someone significant and special. Think of that for a moment: significance accorded because of who you are, and not because of what you do. This is an essential form of nourishment. It cannot be reliably supplied by strangers or even friends - only by the family over the long haul."
