Moore Academy - Home Schooling : Death of Raymond MooreDr. Raymond Moore was a Seventh-day Adventist educator who was instrumental in introducing homeschooling to America and abroad. Often called the “grandfather of homeschooling”, he authored many books about home education including a popular book called Better Late Than Early. It was instrumental in launching the homeschool movement. In 1972 Dr. Moore wrote an article for Harper’s magazine that opposed a proposed California law which would establish compulsory education for all children as young as two-years and nine-months old. The article was so popular that Reader’s Digest asked him to expand upon his knowledge and experience in a book. Better Late Than Early was the result of that request. Dr. Moore’s wife, Dorothy, was a reading specialist, and together they wrote many subsequent books about home education.

Dr. Moore’s career started as teacher and principal, then as a superintendent of California Public Schools. During World War II he served on the staff of General MacArthur. He received a PhD. in Education from the University of Southern California. Subsequently he became an academic dean and president of several Seventh-day Adventist colleges in the United States, Japan, and the Philippines. His successes brought him to the attention of the US Office of Education and they invited him to become a higher education program officer.

But, it was his research upon the effects of schooling on young children that steered his efforts towards homeschooling. He became the world’s most expert witness regarding homeschooling and was involved with educators and courts that assisted parents who  wanted the freedom to legally homeschool their children. He helped to establish legal precedent in South Africa, West Germany, the United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States.

Dr. and Mrs. Moore were strong believers in the development of head, heart, and hand. They believed that the principles of study, work, and service were well established and laid out by Ellen White, an Adventist pioneer and church founder. Using these principles, the Moore’s developed an educational plan that has become well-known in homeschooling circles as The Moore Formula.
