Book Review: Dumbing Us Down (Gatto)

Book Review: Dumbing Us Down (Gatto)

Gatto has quite a negative view towards America’s public school system. Having taught in it for 30 years, he has seen firsthand how “government monopoly schools” and “compulsory schools” (as he calls them) have brought harm upon our society.
