Synopsis

Here is a rich ethnographic description of Amish education in 21st Century America that describes how literacy, community, and accountability are key values in the Amish educational system. The author gives readers a succinct overview of Amish history and religious practice, and then explores the reasons the Amish began their schools and some of the struggles they had to endure as a result. The book provides an emcompassing description of common teaching styles, curriculum, and textbooks, as well as detailed classroom glimpses of Amish schools throughout the United States and Canada.
