And the Skylark Sings with Me
Adventures in Homeschooling and Community-Based Education
by David H. Albert
foreword by Joseph Chilton Pearce
Acting on their conviction that to educate a child well is to enable her to find her destiny, David Albert and his partner Ellen listened carefully, with respect and with love, to how their children expressed their own learning needs. Leaving traditional homeschooling methods behind, they followed their daughters' unique knowledge quests - from astronomy and botany, to opera and mythology - and then went about finding the resources and opportunities to meet those needs within their community.
Gracefully written, And the Skylark Sings with Me passionately illustrates that real learning is much richer and more mysterious than any school can encompass.
