U.S. Military Leaders Who Were Home-Schooled

billkozyBillkozy on 04/09/2010

USMilitaryLeadersWhoWereHomeSchooled Photo Home schooling. Here are two opposing views as expressed in the March 2008 issue of Glaour magazine:
Some say it provides extraordinary opportunities since even if you're being taught all subjects, when there is one that the student particularly enjoys, it can be explored in greater depth. And as for the claim that there's a lack of socializing, that all depends on the family. If they are industrious enough, some homeschooling families have gotten together with other homeschoolinig families and have formed debate teams, or joined a church choirs, or any of several other forms of clubs. And some students claim they have an easier time in college because they were used to structuring their own curriculum.

On the other hand, some kids crave the company of other children. One woman regretted her homeschooling because being raised by a single mother who thought regular school would "stifle our artistic nature" gave her kids books and said, "If you want to learn, go ahead." As a result all she did was
play with her dolls, ignoring her school books. She says by the time she got to college she didn't know how to have relationships, so she shut people out. She says she will definitely send her own kids to school.

Here are some famous military leaders throughout U.S. history who have been homeschooled. I hope you enjoy the quiz, and please rate it afterward if you have a chance. There will be a test. I'll be sending a tutor to your home to check up on your quiz-taking work.
Best wishes,

#7: From "Incidents In The Life of General John J. Pershing" by Cullom Holmes Farrell: "Throughout all the years that the boy struggled to gain an education and start on the highroad of life, the understanding between mother and son never flagged. There were times when she sought to restrain the ambition that led to excess of study, but in the end she always gave way, assured that after all, he was right." Years later, Pershing was a schoolteacher at Prairie Mound, Missouri and entered a competition for an appointment to West Point which he won, and was able to further his education. What was this World War II general's nickname?

General Pershing served in World War I
