John Taylor Gatto books

Quote:The one problem I have with Gatto is he supports a sort of "anarcho-capitalist" school system in place of the current "totalitarian socialist" system. He would replace state funded and authoritarian schools with privately funded "free schools." Honestly, I still support including the socialist aspect of state funding for education. In many cases, a libertarian private school would be inaccessible to the poor and disenfranchised, and may cause just as much damage as an authoritarian socialist school. I would support free state-funded education for every citizen, and thus the ideal model would be the libertarian socialist school.

Based On what I read so far hes more so anarchism socialism. A belief in a free market, but against the foundation of profit.

RE: John Taylor Gatto books

School is for the most part an irrelevent factor in peoples lives except that it offers a chance to meet other people, which could easily be facilitated by other means.

Also, i'm bumping this because I am working on a comprehensive Anthology of JTG lectures that I found free online (vemeo, youtube, etc.)

A suprisingly non-reduntant speaker, I am listing the parts of each speech that are unique so as to index what my iTunes counts as 1.9 days in 31 tracks

Purity is to Believe only that which deserves it.
Wisdom is to follow only the Opinion which makes the best use of evidence.
Excellence is to be mindful of all these things in Living.
