JTGatto:   A Brief Note On Family, from Dumbing Us Down, pg. xv

“Since I refer frequently to the family in [my] essays…I want to make it clear that in my view each of us decides what “family” means in the arena of his or her heart.  So far as I am concerned, no authority may presume to impose a centralized definition, a well-regulated orthodoxy, on the varied and vital entities that can be called ‘family.’ “

    Thank you so much for this very insightful podcast.

    I think the work that John Taylor Gatto has done is very important work.

    We have all been subjects in the compulsory school system and therefore have first hand knowledge of just how damaging it can be, and yet, we think it is normal to send our kids to the very same misery. Thanks to men like him, he points out not only the flaws in the education system, but the motives behind the system.

    Thank you Cathy for this very well done podcast. The clip at the end is an amazing find!

      Thank you for your comment and encouragement Darby! Yes, an understanding of the motives behind the school system makes the message all the more urgent.
