About the Book

**Description from Amazon: THE COLFAXES DIDN’T START TEACHING THEIR BOYS AT HOME TO GET THEM INTO HARVARD – BUT THAT’S WHAT HOMESCHOOLING ACCOMPLISHED!

For over fifteen years, David and Micki Colfax educated their children at home. They don’t think of themselves as pioneers, though that’s what they became. Unhappy with the public schools, the Colfaxes wanted the best education possible for their four sons: a program for learning that met the evolving needs of each child and gave them complete control of how and what their children learned. The results? A prescription for excellence-Harvard educations for their sons Grant, Drew, and Reed. (Their fourth son is still too young for college.)

Now the Colfaxes tell how all parents can become involved in homeschooling. In a straight-talking book that reads like a frank conversation among friends, they tell what they did and how they did it: their educational approaches, the lessons they learned, and what materials-books, equipment, educational aids-proved most useful over the years. Best of all, they show you how you can take charge of your children’s education-in an invaluable sourcebook that will help you find a rewarding and successful alternative to our failing schools.
