Our purpose for organizing this event was to introduce parents to the perils and pitfalls of modern compulsory schooling
in the hopes of awakening a desire in them and need to seek out alternative approaches to educating our children. What we experienced at the conference was much more than what we had hoped for or anticipated. The dynamic relationship between John Taylor Gatto and Hamza Yusuf was extraordinary:
both men share a knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject matter, and a purity of intention, which left an indelible mark on every heart in the audience. In bringing you this production, we hope to share the wisdom of a special and most empowering weekend.
