Auther of best selling DUMBING US DOWN
Here again John Taylor Gatto in his famous storytelling style shows that how forced schooling seduces the trapped into believing us that inert knowledge, memorized fact bits and sequences is the gold standard of intellectual achievements. Learning to connect those bits into meanings for oneself is always discouraged. He further demonstrates that this habit training is a major Weapon of Mass Instruction and the harm school inflicts is rational and deliberate.
This book is filled with many real life examples of people who escaped the trap of compulsory schooling at the same age when we were once, sitting at our school desks, copying notes from a blackboard, getting yelled at. Weapons of Mass Instructionshows us that realization of personal potential requires a different way of growing up and growing competent, one which Gatto calls “open-source learning,’’ which is of much higher quality than rule-driven, one-size-fits-all schooling.
