Better Late Than Early

I checked out “Better Late Than Early” by Raymond S. Moore and Dorothy N. Moore from the library last weekend.

My mom had told me that she and some friends had read it back in the early 80’s. It’s really good. I’ve seen stuff online that claims it to be a “homeschool” book, but it doesn’t seem like it to me so far.

The authors show, from studies and research, that a child isn’t really ready for a classroom type setting until sometime between 8 and 10. That if you teach them mostly within the home (or wherever you, the parent, are with them) and put them in school later, it is better. It’s really quite fascinating and I think anyone with kids should read it. I’m not going to bother giving you their points, you just have to check it out. I’ve had to scan through a chapter all about state laws (I don’t really care, plus some of that info could be outdated), but am a few chapters in now.

You should read it, you might find something interesting.
