Is American education preparing the future leaders our nation needs, or merely struggling to teach basic literacy and job skills? Without leadership education, are we settling for an inadequate system that delivers educational, industrial, governmental and societal mediocrity? In A Thomas Jefferson Education: Teaching a Generation of Leaders for the Twenty-First Century, Oliver DeMille presents a new educational vision based on proven methods that really work! Teachers, students, parents, educators, legislators, leaders and everyone who cares about America's future must read this compelling book.
"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 prescription, and Dr. DeMille doesn't sugarcoat it. But he does show us, honestly and authoritatively, the price we must pay to remain a free people. If you are willing to find out what that blessing will cost you and your children, read this book."
—Andrew M. Allison, author of The Real Thomas Jefferson
