#12: The Literature Instructor's Panel Discusses Ben Franklin's Early Education Part 1

Aired Monday, May 23, 2016   ·   08:00 AM CDT   ·   27 minutes

Host Dennis Leap, James Brandon and Brandon Nice discuss Ben Franklin's early education. Besides learning the printing trade with his brother James, Ben taught himself to write as well as two of the best English essayists of his time, beginning at age 12 in his off hours!

Ben Franklin's self-motivation is truly amazing. This is proof that parents can expect more of their teens today and get positive results; America's founding generation did. Parents need to follow the same example.
