This is a lively account of one of the most important and overlooked themes in American education. Beginning in the colonial period and working to the present, Gaither describes in rich detail how the home has been used as the base for education of all kinds. The last five chapters focus especially on the modern homeschooling movement and offer the most comprehensive and authoritative account of it ever written. Readers will learn how and why homeschooling emerged when it did, where it has been, and where it may be going.
Milton Gaither is Associate Professor of Education at Messiah College in Grantham, PA. He has published several articles and one book, American Educational History Revisited: A Critique of Progress. He resides in Mechanicsburg, PA, with his wife, Elizabeth, and their four children Rachel, Aidan, Susanna, and Macrina.
