Holocaust was mentioned in a history class, she didnt know what it was no, really Thats because she didnt see the inside of a classroom until the age of seventeen Public education was one of the many

a brother who managed to extricate himself from their isolatedand often dangerous world, Westover might still be in rural Idaho, trying to survive her survivalist upbringing Its a miraculous story she tells in her memoir Educated For those of us who took our educations for granted, who occasionally fell asleep in large lecture halls and inconveniently small ones , its hard to grasp the level of gritnot to mention intellectrequired to pull off what Westover did But eventually earning a PhD from Cambridge University may have been the easy part, at least compared to what she had to sacrifice to
