Joanne Calderwood has been a popular magazine columnist for several years and has become a very popular speaker at home-education conferences across the country. Her self-propelled philosophy of education has transformed lives across the nation and the world. She is considered a “Mom Magnet” due to her down-to-earth persona and ability to speak to the real issues of parenting in the twenty-first century. "The Self-Propelled Advantage" is a complete synopsis of her wisdom, experience, and philosophy of education and parenting, as borne out in the lives of her own exceptional children. This book will be extremely popular with anyone who currently places a high value on the education of their children.
"The Self-Propelled Advantage" also contains valuable information on preparing for college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT. With one SAT perfect scorer, one near-perfect scorer, and four students who have gone to college on full academic scholarships, she has the results to provide provenance to her work.
