Another Quote

Still reading my Gatto (among others) book. The end of school (yes, we finished evaluations yesterday, so we are DONE! at least until July 1 LOL) kept me too busy to do much extra reading; but hopefully summer will bring me more down time!

Here is another quote from Gatto:

"Here is the crux of the difference between education and schooling— the former turns on independence, knowledge, ability, comprehension, and integrity; the latter upon obedience."

I really recommend reading some of these books, especially to anyone who is curious about the history of the educational system in the US or who is dissatisfied with it now.
