About this deal

We’ll never know the full/true story here, but I have concluded that the family environment certainly wasn’t a healthy one. In this brief but explosive book, Christodoulou challenges several orthodoxies in education such as prioritising skills over knowledge, the claim that teacher-led instruction is passive, and why you can’t just look it up on Google. LaRee admits, very briefly on one page, that “no one who knows Travis –not even Travis himself–will tell you that he doesn’t have a temper. To those who have not had such experiences or feelings, her testimony or beliefs may appear to be awkward and confusing.

I would’ve have been less likely to believe Tara’s account if she was 100% about every detail and find her more believable due to her attempts at clarification. As a registered nurse I think one thing that needs to be clear is the word “midwife” can mean a lot of different things. I don’t believe all of her stories about her mother’s midwifery, homeschooling and natural medicine. Tier two words are of vital importance to children’s development and this book provides sage advice on how to expand that vital range, along with a range of different approaches to broaden children’s vocabulary.She’s a lovely person and a dear friend, who I have heard so often speak with love and compassion of her family. In the case of Tara, it is the educational establishment that stood up for her, not her Church community. It is also interesting that the business was built taking plants by robbing nature and now I think it is just international trade in chemicals which drives it. He uses all of his family as his personal slaves, for his own purposes, and it’s clear that is what this book is. Other content, however, is he-said, she-said and is noted with asterisks and tiny print or is admittedly retold from conversations with relatives later in life.

Sacred experiences or received blessings are not to be used to establish credibility or enforce a point of conflict to prove that one’s differing thoughts or decisions are right. From introducing complex vocabulary to applying cognitive science, books can help teachers improve their practice. I have often argued that I would not let any teacher into a school unless – as a minimum – they had read, carefully and well, the three great books on education: Plato’s Republic, Rousseau’s Émile and Dewey’s Democracy and Education.I just finished Educated and became so intrigued that I started looking up the family and landed here.
