Shows parents and teachers how children’s learning experiences can be extended to every aspect of life, giving them a new richness, stability, and joy for living.

Every parent and teacher wants to give his or her children the best education possible. We hope that the education we provide is a joyful adventure, a celebration of life, and preparation for living. But sadly, most education today falls short of this goal.

For the Children’s Sake is a book about what education can be, based on a Christian understanding of what it means to be human—to be a child, a parent, a teacher—and on the Christian meaning of life. The central ideas have been proven over many years and in almost every kind of educational situation, including ideas that Susan and Ranald Macaulay have implemented in their own family and school experience.

For the Children’s Sake will benefit parents and teachers in any educational setting—homeschooling, public school, or private school. This new edition features an updated cover design.
