The story of human education is the story of life itself; it is the story of every child and every family. To live is to experience learning and teaching, following and leading. Where these are not, we are not. Living is experiencing. This is a domain shared by everyone; it is the substance of all that we think, feel, and do. Education is the core of every person's life; it is both unique and something that can be shared without fear of depletion. The more we give, the more that what we have is enhanced. Like life itself, the most useful, enduring and desirable origin for personal education is in the family and the culture that sustains the family. Wherever there are humans, there is education, and the vastness of that story is hard to imagine - let alone encompass. And history suggests that the story of education can only be told in fragments and with limited illustrative commentary. Nevertheless, the topic is a vital story that needs to be told over and over again because we are all part of the story. Nothing is lost by this continual endeavor, and there is much to gain. The story fragment in this document focuses on Joseph Smith, a boy born in the eighteenth century frontier New England, who came into the world amidst poverty, humble circumstances and without fame or fanfare. His life, like all others', was shaped by education; but in his case the consequences of his education are quite unique. The nature of what he did, how he did it, and the way his education affected the education of others is certainly worthy of serious consideration. This essay is written to all those who might find interest in exploring the relationship between the American education and Joseph Smith and the American Prophet. It is addressed to anyone who loves education and finds interest in the thoughts and writings of Joseph Smith, as well as to those who love Joseph Smith and also find interest in theory and practice of education.

Revealed Educational Principles & the Public Schools, Monnett, Jack
2 Revealed Educational Principles & the Public Schools

Monnett, JackNew, Archive Publishers, 2000, Heber City, Utah

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! %% ; Brand new softcover book! %% ; "Revealed Educational Principles & the Public Schools" has become a pivotal book in the LDS home schooling movement. It historically demonstrates that the Church has had reservations about the educational role of government and the secular nature of public learning. This book was named as "Book of the Year" by the LDS Home Educators' Association. From Dr. W. Cleon Skousen, author and educator: "This book is the best history that I know of concerning the valiant struggle of LDS parents to get a balanced education for their children. The determination of secular educators to completely eliminate moral and spiritual teachings from the schools is contrary to the most fundamental policies advocated by both Franklin and Jefferson. It is a continuing struggle which makes this book of such primary significance. "From Dr. Oliver DeMille, Provost, George Wythe College: "Reading Dr. Monnett's history of LDS education is like reading a manual for solving modern educational concerns. Could it be that our hardest educational problems were answered by the prophets over a century ago?"From David M. Nelson, President of Benjamin Franklin Academies: "This book, more than any other I have read, helps clear up the misunderstandings that exist concerning the divine role parents play in the gospel with respect to their children's education. "From Joyce Kinmont, President and Founder of the LDS Home Educators' Association: "After all the early Saints had sacrificed, if they had been just a little more visionary, a little more obedient, how much different things would be for our children today. This book tells a sad story but points to a happier ending; it will change the course of educational history in the Church. That's why we named this book our "Book of the Year.
