This collection of essays by John Taylor Gatto should be required reading for all parents of young children before they are first enrolled in school. Failing that, parents of kids still in school should read it too, so they can pull their kids out before there is any further damage done to them!

Public schools are the lowest common way to educate our children, please be involved whatever choice you choose.
