This may give some food for thought to the people who visit here that have younger children.
I know it has given me much to think about.
This is the first time I have heard John Taylor Gatto interviewed.
His books include: Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling (1992); The Exhausted School (1993); A Different Kind of Teacher (2000); and The Underground History Of American Education (2001), and Weapons of Mass Instruction (2009).
We ask some important questions: Is there a relationship between eugenics, mind control and compulsory education? Is compulsory education good for anyone and what are the negative effects of our "modern" education system? Where did our education system originate, and by whom? What's happened to our educational system since the 1800s? Has there been an intentional effort by the elites and government to dumb us down?
really a must listen!
