Frustrated by his daughter Gillian's lack of interest in school, her subsequent poor grades, and her "failure to take failure seriously," Dan Riley took sole responsibility for her education and decided to teach her at home for an academic year. Out of that experience comes this parent's wise and witty memoir of home schooling, now a growing popular movement in America with more than a half million participants.
