09/18/2004 Archived Entry: "John Taylor Gatto on U.S. government schools"

IF YOU'VE NEVER READ JOHN TAYLOR GATTO this short article gives a pocket glimpse of everything he has to say about U.S. government schooling. And nobody has more important things to say on that subject than Gatto!

His early book Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling was a smack upside the head. Far and away his best book (but sadly not widely available) is The Underground History of American Education. One or the other of those books would be on my list of top 10 non-fiction books of the 20th century.

Found the Gatto article via LewRockwell.com this morning.
