    John Taylor Gatto and Education

    This man has been discussed here on a couple of threads. The larger issue of education and control has also been discussed. I found this on eye-rise, thanks Kathy!

    And I looked at the essay you linked to a couple years ago, Aianawa.

    This is only five minutes, and I have to say I didn't read either of the texts he names. I was amongst the first class in the various states I grew up in to no longer have to take Civics, Latin, or IPS (intro to physical sciences) In hindsight, all three would have helped in many ways.

    I found the complete video from which this is excerpted. It's about 4 hours, called The Trapped Flea Principal. He says near the beginning, "I have enough materials here to keep you in duress for about a week."

    He used the word exactly as Mark Passio defines it.
