Forging Paths PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Forging Paths free pdf Traditional schooling may not provide your son or daughter with a satisfactory or fulfilling education. In "Forging Paths: Beyond Traditional Schooling," you'll read the stories of nine young people who took varying, nontraditional educational paths and succeeded in their chosen endeavors and vocations. Wes Beach, director of an unusual private high school, speaker, and author, prompts you to reconsider the idea that any highly successful career path must involve piling up gold stars in high school to gain immediate admission to a prestigious university in order to earn a degree which can cost more than most people earn in a year. Discover how passion, persistence, creativity and perseverance can lead to a life of satisfaction and even some traditional achievements!

About Wes Beach

Wes Beach worked in public schools for 31 years, mostly in high schools, and in a private school for one year. He taught science, math, and English, and directed programs for gifted and "at-risk" kids. He wised up in 1993, left the system, and has since then directed Beach High School, which consists of a home office and an attitude-the attitude expressed in this book. He is at present the Teen Adviser for both the Gifted Homeschoolers Forum (GHF) and the HomeSchool Association of California (HSC)- he served on HSC's board for two years. He has spoken at many conferences (especially at HSC's in Sacramento each year), written a number of articles, and authored another book, "Opportunities After High School: Thoughts, Documents, Resources."
