Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling (Anniversary) (10TH ed.)
Contributor(s): Gatto, John Taylor (Author), Moore, Thomas (Foreword by)
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."
