The Education of James Madison: A Model for Today


By Mary-Elaine Swanson

“It has been said that never have there been so many outstanding political leaders assembled under one roof than when the Constitutional Convention convened in Philadelphia in 1787.… Preeminent among these distinguished leaders for his learning and sagacity was James Madison.… Admittedly, James Madison was a scholar by nature, but without the particular kind of education he received…it is doubtful that he would have become the remarkably creative statesman known as ‘the Father of the Constitution.’… Madison’s well-rounded and thorough education—and its end result—should be thought provoking for parents and teachers today. It is hoped that through this book they will be inspired to use the principles and methods of Madison’s education…[toward preparing] tomorrow’s leaders in politics, business, and the arts.”
