John Taylor Gatto interview – “Another Brick in the Wall, part 2″ – #069

This show is being released on Friday, March 15, 2010. Part 2 of my interview with John Taylor Gatto was recorded on February 24, 2010. Today we continue learning the significance behind Pink Floyd's song Another Brick in the Wall, part 2, and how utterly fubar our public education system is in our second interview with John Taylor Gatto. We continue with some important questions: Is there a relationship between eugenics, mind control and compulsory education? Is compulsory education good for anyone and what are the negative effects of our "modern" education system? Where did our education system originate, and by whom? What's happened to our educational system since the 1800s? Has there been an intentional effort by the elites and government to dumb us down? What do compulsory education and Pavlov's dogs have in common? Are children better off working, or being in school? Order Gatto's books: Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling (1992): The Exhausted School (1993): A Different Kind of Teacher (2000): The Underground History Of American Education (2001): Weapons of Mass Instruction (2009):

    This is an exciting book that will grasp the reader to reflect on ones past life’s, and how we all became who we are, Products of institutionalization. I greatly enjoyed the information that was applied concerning the “great industrial” minds. I am glad Mr. Gatto has been apart of this study.
