Book by Gatto John Taylor
"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
With over 70,000 copies of the first edition in print, this radical treatise on public education has been a New Society Publishers' bestseller for 10 years! Thirty years in New York City's public schools led John Gatto to the sad conclusion that compulsory schooling does little but teach young people to follow orders like cogs in an industrial machine. This second edition describes the wide-spread impact of the book and Gatto's "guerrilla teaching." John Gatto has been a teacher for 30 years and is a recipient of the New York State Teacher of the Year award. His other titles include A Different Kind of Teacher (Berkeley Hills Books, 2001) and The Underground History of American Education (Oxford Village Press, 2000).Biografía del autor:

Descripción New Society Publishers, Gabriola Island, B.C., 2002. Wraps. Condición: New. No Jacket. 10th anniversary Edition. "I began to wonder, reluctantly, whether it was possible that being in school itself was what was dumbing them down?" This brisk, 103-page paperback is the book that started it all off for Gatto, back in 1992. A teacher in the New York City public schools for almost three decades, John Taylor Gatto was named New York City teacher of the year three times and, in 1991, New York State Teacher of the Year. Since his widely publicized resignation in 1991, "he has been among the country's most penetrating, wise, irritating, informed, provocative and prophetic voices in the fierce debate over education reform." Actually, the current system of "psychopathic schools" cannot be "reforned," Gatto argues, since its purposeful design -- manifested in its physical set-up, its segregation by age cohort, its isolation from the outside world, its division of "learning" into 50-minute blocks punctuated by the sound of bells -- is to produce a docile pool of welfare-state factory workers and military recruits incapable of integrating their "information bits" into a mature and integrated personality with powers of critical analysis and judgment. Thus, no amount of money invested in the public schools can ever help them deliver happy, well-rounded, well-informed young people ready to take up the role of responsible citizens in a free country.
