The Glenbard Parent Series has selected the riveting “Educated: A Memoir” by best-selling author Tara Westover as its second semester .. Read more Community-Wide Read. She never attended school and never saw a doctor. Teaching herself algebra, Westover was able to score well enough on the ACT to enter Brigham Young University. Her passion to be educated took her to Harvard University and ultimately to Cambridge, where she earned her PhD. Born in Idaho to a father opposed to public education, she never attended school. After that first encounter with education she pursued learning for a decade, graduating magna cum laude from Brigham Young University in 2008 and subsequently winning a Gates Cambridge Scholarship. She received an MPhil from Trinity College, Cambridge in 2009 and in 2014 was awarded a PhD in history.
