John Gatto Quote

“Schools teach exactly what they are intended to teach and they do it well: how to be a good Egyptian and remain in your place in the pyramid.”
― John Taylor Gatto, Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling

Kids being out of publicly funded indoctrination centers is probably the best thing that could happen to them. Have them watch School House Rock and pre- 1980 Sesame Street. They’ll learn 10x as much.

John Gatto said he could give a kid the the equivalent of a K-12 public school education in a 100 hours or less, depending on the kid. I believe him.
