characters ✓ Educated ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home canned peaches and sleeping with her head for the hills bag In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother a midwife and healer and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyardHer father forbade hospitals so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse Gashes and concussions even burns from explosions were all treated at home with herbalism The family was so isolated from mainstream so. I ve always prided myself on my ability to teach myself things Whenever I don t know a lot about something I ll read a textbook or watch an online course until I doI thought I was pretty good at teaching myself until I read Tara Westover s memoir Educated Her ability to learn on her own blows mine right out of the water I was thrilled to sit down with her recently to talk about the bookTara was raised in a Mormon survivalist home in rural Idaho Her dad had very non mainstream views about the government He believed doomsday was coming and that the family should interact with the health and education systems as little as possible As a result she didn t step foot in a classroom until she was 17 and major medical crises went untreated her mother suffered a brain injury in a car accident and never fully recoveredBecause Tara and her six siblings worked at their father s junkyard from a young age none of them received any kind of proper homeschooling She had to teach herself algebra and trigonometry and self studied for the ACT which she did well enough on to gain admission to Brigham Young University Eventually she earned her doctorate in intellectual history from Cambridge University Full disclosure she was a Gates Scholar which I didn t even know until I reached that part of the book Educated is an amazing story and I get why it s spent so much time on the top of the New York Times bestseller list It reminded me in some ways of the Netflix documentary Wild Wild Country which I recently watched Both explore people who remove themselves from society because they have these beliefs and knowledge that they think make them enlightened Their belief systems benefit from their separateness and you re forced to be either in or outBut unlike Wild Wild Country which revels in the strangeness of its subjects Educated doesn t feel voyeuristic Tara is never cruel even when she s writing about some of her father s most fringe beliefs It s clear that her whole family including her mom and dad is energetic and talented Whatever their ideas are they pursue themOf the seven Westover siblings three of them including Tara left home and all three have earned PhDs Three doctorates in one family would be remarkable even for a conventional household I think there must ve been something about their childhood that gave them a degree of toughness and helped them persevere Her dad taught the kids that they could teach themselves anything and Tara s success is a testament to thatI found it fascinating how it took studying philosophy and history in school for Tara to trust her own perception of the world Because she never went to school her worldview was entirely shaped by her dad He believed in conspiracy theories and so she did too It wasn t until she went to BYU that she realized there were other perspectives on things her dad had presented as fact For example she had never heard of the Holocaust until her art history professor mentioned it She had to research the subject to form her own opinion that was separate from her dad sHer experience is an extreme version of something everyone goes through with their parents At some point in your childhood you go from thinking they know everything to seeing them as adults with limitations I m sad that Tara is estranged from a lot of her family because of this process but the path she s taken and the life she s built for herself are truly inspiringWhen you meet her you don t have any impression of all the turmoil she s gone through She s so articulate about the traumas of her childhood including the physical abuse she suffered at the hands of one brother I was impressed by how she talks so candidly about how na ve she once was most of us find it difficult to talk about our own ignoranceI was especially interested to hear her take on polarization in America Although it s not a political book Educated touches on a number of the divides in our country red states versus blue states rural versus urban college educated versus not Since she s spent her whole life moving between these worlds I asked Tara what she thought She told me she was disappointed in what she called the breaking of charity an idea that comes from the Salem witch trials and refers to the moment when two members of the same group break apart and become different tribes I worry that education is becoming a stick that some people use to beat other people into submission or becoming something that people feel arrogant about she said I think education is really just a process of self discovery of developing a sense of self and what you think I think of it as this great mechanism of connecting and eualizing Tara s process of self discovery is beautifully captured in Educated It s the kind of book that I think everyone will enjoy no matter what genre you usually pick up She s a talented writer and I suspect this book isn t the last we ll hear from her I can t wait to see what she does next KASAYSAYAN The Story of the Filipino People of Idaho she prepared for the end ATSEM et ASEM (Admis fonction pub concours) of the world by stockpiling home canned peaches and sleeping

characters ✓ Educated ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ciety that there was no one to ensure the children received an education and no one to intervene when one of Tara's older brothers became violentThen lacking any formal education Tara began to educate herself She taught herself enough mathematics and grammar to be admitted to Brigham Young University where she studied history learning for the first time about important world events like the Holocaust and the civil rights movement Her uest for knowledge transformed her taking her over oceans and across continents to Harvard and to Cambridge Only. Westover is clearly a decent writer but I felt underwhelmed by this book Some things didn t seem to add up Such as how an uneducated mountain wildgirl clicked her heels together magicked up thousands of dollars yeah yeah scholarships don t cover everything you know and went on to some of the world s most prestigious higher education centres Intelligence is not the main thing reuired to attend Harvard or Cambridge being able to pass exams and perform the system s dance is Someone without formal education should have no idea how to do thatAlso are some people magically cured by herbs and finger clicking here or did I miss some medical intervention along the wayBut I think overall I was just a little disappointed because everyone seemed to find the survivalist aspect so dramatic and awful I ve read a few books about isolated communities that go off the grid and enforce their own laws and I have to say Westover s experience felt pretty tame Her family were survivalists who spent months canning peaches and hunting for scrap but is this really that odd I heard all these promises of wilderness and mountain survivalists but they have a phone and TV I would say this family is eccentric than survivalistWhere the book does succeed is as a portrait of physical and emotional abuse I think this was the most important part of the book and it s been glossed over in favour of people s delight at learning about weirdos running around wild in the mountains I m not judging I came for that too I also found it really interesting and sad when the author suggested that her father s paranoid delusions might have been undiagnosed bipolar disorder It s a uick read with crowd pleasing writing I ll give it that But it s hard to not feel like something is amiss and certain events were probably exaggerated Or alternatively Westover s survivalist family were sitting on a few on the grid dollars that conveniently popped up when euipment needed repairs and people needed to go to college It s also possible that the writing just lacked clarityFacebook Instagram
