Introduction by Joseph Chilton Pearce
In an engaging memoir, award-winning educator Resa Steindel
Brown is drawn to the astonishing discovery that all children
are born brilliant.
Since she was a child, Resa wrestled with education. Learning
was never a problem. The challenge lay in the interface between
how our educational system is structured and who we are really.
The fit never quite made sense to her.
This story follows her search through five decades of educational
practices and the research of over fifty renowned authors,
to the creation of an award-winning school, homeschool, philosophy
and practice successful beyond imagination. Its gift: how
to find the passion that leads to brilliance in all our children
and in ourselves.
The Call to Brilliance shows concerned parents and
educators how to turn children's challenges into strengths
and their gifts into passions. It devastates the concepts
of learning disabilities. It dissolves the artificial barriers
of grade level. It unveils the pretense of standardized testing
and reveals how our children really learn. But above all,
it shows us how all children can succeed to brilliance.
