John Taylor Gatto And State Controlled Consciousness

Processing children like raw materials.
Gives a whole new perspective on "In Loco Parentis".
"Every child in America entering school at the age of five is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It's up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well by creating the international child of the future." - Harvard psychiatrist Chester M. Pierce, speaking as an expert in public education at the 1973 International Education Seminar

If you haven't read his book - "The Underground History of American Education", then you really should try to get around to doing so.

What a great man! I loved "Dumbing Us Down", I've never seen him "live" before.
I've been pondering a homeschool post, I may have to act upon it.
Thanks for this and others, I love your blog, it's always interesting.
