Overview

Even within our education system, hijacked and led to failure by national education policies and mandates, students can still escape to gain a good and effective education. Current education policies dictate each student be educated as a robot off an assembly line. This concept is contrary to reasonable humanity. Every child is unique, guided by different nurturing, examples, social structure, dreams and aspirations. Instead of allowing and guiding students to find their natural paths to success within their perceived realities, government assigns group realities. This creates despair, and dropouts, from weaker students and disappointment from more gifted students who recognize this governmental travesty. This book exposes and explains why government education policies fail and why education success must be achieved by interaction between children and parents. The education process is made clear by understanding the three parts of education: opportunity, conditioning, and motivation. Ten parenting skills and twenty study skills are included to support this education process.
