ELIZABETH Y. HANSON graduated from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, California, and much like Maria Montessori, a doctor turned educator, she later applied her understanding of the whole person in medicine to her work in education as well as homeschooling her own children. Largely influenced by John Taylor Gatto, she has developed a unique understanding of raising and educating children that offers a fresh approach to an age-old concern. Since 2001, Elizabeth has worked tirelessly to help parents around the globe discover better ways for raising and educating children. 


I found Elizabeth’s perspective on education inspiring and refreshing, and it has given me the confidence to take on the adventure of educating my own children. Her voice is an important one during a time of great uncertainty regarding the future of education in this country.

I know Elizabeth Hanson as a remarkably intelligent, highly sensitive woman with a moral nature and deep insight into differences between schooling and education. Elizabeth’s mastery of current educational difficulties is a testimony to her comprehensive understanding of the competing worlds of schooling and education. She has a good heart and a good head. What more can I say? I wish my own children had had such a mentor during their own growing up times.
