New Society Publishers Weapons of Mass Instruction: A SchoolTeacher's Journey Through The Dark World of Compulsory Schooling

Taking on forced, compulsory education with a firm stare, unschooling champion John Taylor Gatto lists out example after example of homeschooled, unschooled, and independent-learners who managed to not only not end up outside of society and poor, but brilliant, innovative, and drawing upon their experiences that they found early on in life...and had the opportunity to devote time and energy to developing.

A book that will whip up your enthusiasm for homeschooling when you're down, or provides a high-energy case for those considering homeschooling, Gatto examines the extension of adolescence, the boredom of forced learning, the benefits of open-source learning, and the problems in the Prussian-German system of education. 214 pages, softcover.
