State Teacher of the Year (1991, NY), John Taylor Gatto, delivers his conclusions and insights into forced schooling after 30 years of teaching junior high school students in New York City.
He represents himself and speaks with passion, candor, and humor. He truly is an icon of freedom and self-directed learning, yet he sees himself as a regular guy who was blessed to grow up with a caring community who encouraged responsibility and dialectical thinking from a young age.
This channel is run by Mr. Gatto's authorized agent in an effort to ignite a serious conversation of education, that the children of the world begin being treated as whole people who lives are precious, not "human resources".
