John Gatto is the former NY City and NY State Teacher of the year [1991], where he inspired his students to achieve some amazing results through his nontraditional methods of instruction.

In this video Gatto discusses a kaleidoscope of issues within the Public Schooling system that continues to churn out less and less capable and more dumbed down students each and every year.

If you read additional information as to why the public schooling continues to fail, please read:

The Catastrophic Decline Of Public Schooling: 21 Facts About Why Public Schooling Performs So Poorly

The above includes an excerpt from John Taylor Gatto’s phenomenal book, A Different Kind Of Teacher.  Gatto is also author of the poignant book, Dumbing Us Down – The Hidden Curriculum of Public SchoolingIn it, Gatto minces no words when he states:

Schools are intended to produce, through the application of formulas, formulaic human beings whose behavior can be predicted and controlled.”[1][Bold Emphasis Added]

It is absurd and anti-life to be part of the system that compels you to sit in confinement with people of exactly the same age and social class.  That system effectively cuts you off from the immense diversity of life and the synergy of variety; indeed it cuts you off from your own past and future, sealing you in a continuous present much the same way television does.”[2][Bold Emphasis Added]
