Publisher's Summary

Do you need parenting advice on how to inspire your child to love learning? Whether you homeschool, or send your kids to public or private school, this is essential listening for your situation.
Why? Because schooling has become a disaster. Your child's interests and uniqueness are disregarded, and structured curriculum and standards like Common Core place them on a conveyor belt that treats all children the same. This system crushes a child's curiosity. Your child deserves better!
There is a better way: one that ensures your child sees learning as a joy and provides you, the parent, with a much less stressful way to educate and empower your son or daughter. In this book, Connor Boyack shares the exciting philosophy and empowering day-to-day steps involved in passion-driven education.
A child's curiosity and natural desire to learn are like a tiny flame, easily extinguished unless it's protected and given fuel. This book will help you as a parent both protect that flame of curiosity, and supply it with the fuel necessary to make it burn bright throughout your child's life. Let's ignite our children's natural love of learning!

Good principles in action

Any additional comments?

I love the principles of love, freedom, learning, empowerment, trust and faith expressed in Passion-Driven Education. Boyack also provides case-studies which prove the efficacy of those principles. It's inspired me to more seriously pursue my own passion-driven education and provide the right environment and guidance for my children to learn and grow. My wife is excited to read it now that I'm done.

Reading this little gem reminded me of the sentiments expressed by Albert Einstein:

"Curiosity is a delicate little plant that, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom."

"I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn."

"Play is the highest form of research."

"It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education."

Good

This is very close to how I feel about my own children's education. I'm glad other feel the same way. I hope to implement the methods spoken of in this book.
