Thomas Jefferson Education approach
I have just read, "A Thomas Jefferson Education" by Oliver Van DeMille and I have been intrigued by this Classics Based Education.
I am wondering if others have also read this book and how you might apply it in your home.
Do you see this as another homeschooling approach or would you think it fits under what is termed, "Delight Directed" but with it's own focus on Classics and Mentors?
I certainly love the book lists and the emphasis on the classics as well as the emphasis being on the child's education - not on the parents: "Inspire, not Require."
It is a completely individualized approach and it has a vision of building leaders, statesman and entrepreuners and I would love to add more information on this in the future. I'd love your input on the Thomas Jefferson Approach.
