Having recently read it, I have added a third book by the late, great John Taylor Gatto to my education resources page. And I highly recommend Weapons of Mass Instruction.

In general, it is a shorter but thrilling expansion of his older books. But it includes a few personal stories of his I was unaware of – but not surprised by. Its also full of more examples of how the schools were designed to fail and wreck society and more examples of great men who defied the system and thrived.

Interestingly, Gatto got a very few things wrong. At the time of his writing, he still believed the tech giants were good guys. He’s to be forgiven for that as well as his false conflation of IQ realism and related matters.

All in all, a very good book by an American hero. Homeschool, unschool, be free, survive, and prosper.
