Below is a quote from a remarkable Educator that I wanted to share. So much of what he writes shows just what is wrong with our educational system and gives us some clues as to how we might change it in the World Tomorrow!

“Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist; it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges. It should allow you to find values which will be your road map through life; it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important, how to live and how to die.”

~JOHN TAYLOR GATTO

Below are some of the books he has authored. The titles themselves are very enlightening:

Dumbing Us Down
The Hidden Conspiracy of Compulsory Schooling
The Exhausted School
A different kind of Teacher: Solving the Crisis of American Schooling
The Underground History of American Education
Weapons of Mass Instruction
A School Teachers Journey through the Dark World of Compulsory Schooling
