"Locking a Nation Into Permanent Childhood"

Here's Vin Suprynowicz's latest column, where he describes the origins of today's version of public school and why it's inappropriate for our country. His primary source in this article is none other than John Taylor Gatto, former New York State Teacher of the Year turned homeschool advocate.

This column itself is a great introduction to Gatto's book The Underground History of American Education. You can read Gatto's book online for free (although I own it and recommend buying a print copy). You'll find the link to the free online version in Vin's column.
