Education, State Control, brain-cell......

A really revealing study of the history of compulsory state education, it's roots and founding intent, an intent that has been disguised to most people, hidden in plain view is John Taylor Gattos "An underground History of American State Education"".

it is accessible on-line.

full of well researched and referenced information on the historical links between business and politics with education as the fundamental agent of state control, in a steeply heirarchical structure of power.

Explores the psychology of schooling, and demonstrates the innate immutability and thus the toxicity of the 'system' in the light what we know of how children really learn.

Proposes ways to build education that helps children develop self reliance, interdependence, a healthy sense of self in what they are most interested in.

Good read!

Kindest regards
