The Next Step in TJEd

Often cited by the DeMilles as their favorite work to date, this inspirational manual picks up where the primer/overview work, A Thomas Jefferson Education leaves off. It develops in depth not only the philosophy but also the nuts-and-bolts application of each individual Phase, the critical Transitions between Phases and the “big-picture” vision to begin with the end in mind.

Those who master the content in this book leave behind the question, “But how do you actually DO it?”

A Crisis of Leadership

The world’s problems can be summed up in just a few words: lack of leadership. While the world is in desperate need of leaders, very few people have the tools to become one.

Oliver and Rachel DeMille’s Leadership Education: The Phases of Learning is the manual that every person who aspires to be an effective leader, or to raise one, needs.

Principled decision-making, the cultivation of character, studying the classics, and using critical thinking skills are just a few of the lost educational virtues of today restored by this book.

An in-depth look at the philosophy and phases of education is indispensable when creating leaders. This book will help any family find the direction they are looking for when pursuing leadership education. This book teaches not only the theories behind Thomas Jefferson Education but also the practical application of these theories for you and your children, with great detail on the features of Thomas Jefferson Education-modeled home, parenting, family, education, leadership and life’s mission.

As we apply the philosophy contained in Leadership Education: The Phases of Learning we will transform not only our families and our classrooms, but the world.
