James Madison, the 4th president of our country, was taught at home. How did his childhood education prepare him for the tasks ahead? Mike Smith continues his discussion on today's Home School Heartbeat.
Public education as we know it today did not exist. Homeschooling was the primary method of education.
Homeschooling produced a generation of men and women who had the courage to fight for freedom.
Similar to many other founding fathers, James Madison was taught a biblically based homeschool curriculum.
He was mainly taught by tutors, but his family was also closely involved with his education.
Madison continued his studies under the Reverend John Witherspoon at Princeton University.
The Christian principles imparted to Madison gave him the foundation to articulate his defense of the Constitution. He helped launch an era of responsible self-government. Madison's writings helped the new world shake the grip of tyranny and develop a new form of government, which guarantees the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
As the results have shown, homeschooling prepared him well.
Please join us next time as we continue our discussion of James Madison, our country's 4th president, and the impact that homeschooling had on his worldview. And until next time, I'm Mike Smith.
