John Taylor Gatto joins us to discuss his latest book Weapons of Mass Instruction as well as his earlier book Dumbing Us Down. A former New York State “teacher of the year” award winner, John Taylor Gatto travels around the country as a public speaker to promote educational reform. We are trained to send our children to school, but rarely think about what is actually happening in their classes. How accurate is the formal curriculum? What constitutes “learning”? More importantly, what formal and subliminal messages are our children absorbing, and how does the mass education system harm them?
John Taylor Gatto outlines the formal agenda behind school systems. Their purpose for being will astound many of you! Join us for a dynamic discussion that is bound to rock your world.
