Dr. Raymond Moore has died

Another Google alert brought the sad news that Dr. Raymond Moore has died, as reported at My Domestic Church. Here is some more details.

Dr. Raymond Moore and his wife wrote a number of good books on homeschooling. The Moores have been long time supporters of homeschooling. They created the Moore Foundation.

I really enjoyed Better Late Than Early in which they persuasively argue that pushing children to learn before they are ready is damaging to children. They both explain why, and report on a number of studies supporting this argument.

Raymond Moore will be missed.
