GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO)- A group of local families met Friday night to discuss the possibility of a new school based on the teachings of a founding father.

The families currently homeschool their kids through a philosophy called the Thomas Jefferson Education.

The teaching has 7 primary principles. Two of which are 'inspire not require' and 'you not them'.
They allow their children to choose what they want to study and the curriculum is based on the individual student.
