John Taylor Gatto

I have always been intrigued by John Taylor Gatto. I find his work thought provoking. At times his work borders on conspiracy theory and the fact he did an interview with Alex Jones gives me pause. But, whether the inequalities that exist within the system that Gatto so blatantly points out are intentional at present day or residual of past systemic maltreatment they are certainly worth considering. Last night I came across this series of videos on YouTube. This video series is a single long video chunked into 19 parts where Gatto talks for over two and a half hours about schools, education, project-based learning, individualized instruction, history, and everything else under the sun. If you have the time I encourage you to watch all the videos in this series. If you don't have the time I encourage you to make the time:
