An honest, perceptive discussion of children, education, and our common life as a nation by the bestselling author of Snow Falling on Cedars. A high school English teacher, Guterson and his wife educate their own children at home. “A literate primer for anyone who wants to know more about alternatives to the schools” (Kirkus Reviews). Index.


Guterson, a high school English teacher who teaches his own children at home, examines life at school as well as the opportunities offered by learning outside it. He also provides a broader context: the remarkable academic success of homeschooled children, the history of public schools, philosophies of education, psychological research on learning, and education in other societies.
