9. "Home School Heartbeat": Homeschooled Leader George Washington

As America honors the birthday of our first president this week,
homeschoolers can take a cue from Washington's education. Taught at
home by his mother after his father died, the young George combined
academic studies with good doses of practical application and
character training. The lessons he learned prepared him to lead our
young nation to victory.
