The Greatest History Lesson – John Taylor Gatto

I listened to this audio – twice. Now I’m listening to the analysis roundtable, which I’ll post next.

Would anyone like to listen and comment on this fantastic expose on the education system on my radio broadcast? It would be a great way to practice your active literacy.

The case for homeschooling

Fascinating videos on the future of education. Is this deliberate or such a reckless ship lurching around for a port?

Logan Laplante is a 13 year-old boy who was taken out of the education system to be home schooled instead. Not only was he home schooled, but Logan had the ability to tailor his education to his interests and also his style of learning, something traditional education does not offer. As Logan has mentioned, when he grows up he wants to be happy and healthy. At a TEDx talk in 2013, he discussed how hacking his education is helping him achieve that goal.

Knockout game – what fun

This is nasty. Maybe the masses do need to be tamed. Is this the jungle that “law of the jungle” GHWB was talking about?

Are you gay?

I don’t know why I like this, and I don’t know why I posted this.

Perhaps the reason is that I used to watch Larry King and wait for him to ask something inappropriate and watch him be completely surprised when he got a dumbfounded response.

Of course, the world probably needs more of that, scripted or not.
