I just read this book and I have been homeschooling for 5 years mostly the classical method I also have a college degree I was drawn to this title and did no research on the author I wish I had Mr DeMille has some good insight into the value of classical education but his constant sales pitch of the mentor model made me wonder if he was legitimate Most of his ideas are his own or copied from other books he's read There is not sufficient data to back his claims I did a simple google search and found a lot of alarming information about Oliver DeMille most of which calls into question his authority on education and his honesty about his credentials He is also a devout Mormon which would make many Christians uneasy I think anyone considering buying this book should do some research about the author I'm dissappointed Rainbow is still carrying it and other titles by DeMille

While facilitating a parent�s homeschool support group one of the members asked me if I had read Oliver DeMille�s �A Thomas Jefferson Education� I admitted I hadn�t but that it was on my �reading list� Piqued by their question I decided to purchase a copy of the book to read �Lay down true principles and adhere to then inflexibly Do not be frightened into their surrender�� Thomas JeffersonHomeschooling father Oliver DeMille gives the reader insight as to how Founding Father Thomas Jefferson was educated and how to implement the principles of �leadership education� in the home public and private school settings DeMille begins by addressing our present educational crisis: �Teaching not education should be our focus because great teaching inspires students to educate themselves� The reader is guided through the three major types of schooling: Conveyor Belt Education Professional Education and Leadership Education Next DeMille breaks down �leadership education� into the �phases of learning� which consist of: Core Phase Love of Learning Phase Scholar Phase and Depth Phase �The basic tenets of a Thomas Jefferson Education are classics and mentors depth and breadth quality and application � which are covered in the remaining chapters of the book There is an appendix which includes: 100 Classics Classics for Children and Youth Sample Discussion Questions Where to Find the Classics Recommended Readings and Putting Thomas Jefferson Education to Work and Notes �A Thomas Jefferson Education� can be used as the primary philosophy of education or it can be combined with another Overall �A Thomas Jefferson Education� is an excellent resource to prepare the children of today to become the leaders of tomorrow
