schema:reviewBody""Educational historian Jennings Wagoner opens this study with an overview of Jefferson's own learning experiences, from his tutoring and schooling in Albemarle County through his years at the College of William and Mary. Then the book explores Jefferson's efforts to advance publicly supported education, beginning in Virginia with the first bill he introduced promoting "the more general diffusion of knowledge," and continuing with national initiatives, including the founding of the United States Military Academy at West Point. Wagner concludes with what Jefferson called "the hobby of my old age" - the establishment of the University of Virginia, where he designed the buildings, selected the faculty, planned the curriculum, and served as first rector."--BOOK JACKET."
