7. "Home School Heartbeat": Homeschooled Leader--James Madison

James Madison's childhood education, closely supervised by his
parents, prepared him for much more than his collegiate studies at
Princeton University. It also sparked his distinguished career as
American statesman and president. Madison's biblically based education
instilled in him a strong sense of the proper role of government,
inspiring him to play a crucial role in the constitutional debates.
