About the Book
You, too, can find the courage to trust your child and yourself to take the homeschooling journey and create a stronger, happier, well-educated family along the way.

Is your child unmotivated, bored, or stressed by attending government schools? Is your child gifted or special needs? Are you worried that what passes for education today appears to little more than test-taking and political agendas? Are you tired of the school schedule dictating your family’s lifestyle?

The Art of Education: Reclaiming Your Family, Community and Self provides a profound and thorough explanation for why homeschooling is so desperately need by so many families today. Fifteen years after it was originally written, educational problems Dobson warned about have reached crisis proportions. The Art of Education clearly shows the changes that need to take place in the way we rear our children in order to stop the unraveling of our spiritual and intellectual fiber.

A bonus: Includes a thought-provoking Foreword by John Taylor Gatto, New York State Teacher of the Year and author of The Underground History of American Education.

The Art of Education has stood the test of time as one of the best homeschooling books of the last two decades,” says David Albert, whose latest book is titled What Really Matters.

“Everything about this work is just as relevant as the day Linda wrote it,” adds Laura Grace Weldon, author of Free Range Learning: How Homeschooling Changes Everything. “In fact, time proves the prophetic nature of her words. For homeschoolers and those wondering if homeschooling might be an option, this book is a classic.”
