Home education or home schooling how it is called by many is more and more an option (many are convinced it is the safest one) and a choice for many faithful Christians, no matter their denomination.

E.A. Sutherland was one of the Adventist pioneers who dedicated his life for the great work of education. He worked in close cooperation with E.G. White and followed the inspired advice to set up a special school, a kind of school of the prophets, called Madison. Everyone could study there, even the poorest children, because they could work to pay their fees in full. Every student had to work for at least half of his expenses, and ideally for all. This school was a miracle. You can find out more about what happened there and how everything started reading the book Madison – God’s Beautiful Farm: The E. A. Sutherland Story, By Ira Gish, Harry M Christman
