Book summary

Strong words from the New York State Teacher of the Year! Twenty-six years of award-winning teaching have led John Gatto to the sad conclusion that compulsory governmental school does little but teach young people to follow orders. Dumbing Us Down offers a radical critique of public schooling, and suggests a guerilla curriculum of daily involvement in our communities. [via]
