For anyone interested in hearing Gatto's case without wading through his expansive "Underground History", you can download MP3s of various interviews and speeches here. I've listened to many of them, and in each one he lays out his case quite thoroughly in a limited time.

Also available is this video on Youtube. He covers a lot of ground in 2 hrs 44 mins!

Thank you for the info. I “waded” through his “expansive” underground history—I forced my kids to buy it for me for my birthday 5 years ago. Although it is quite long, I was fascinated by what he had to say. Very enlightened man. I had a “paradigm shift” in my understanding of “education” and I had worked in public schools for a number of years.

I was reading the Bonhoeffer book by Metaxas and when talking of his childhood in Germany, his mother states that she never liked the Prussian school system and never allowed her many kids to go to school until 7 or 8 years of age——so they wouldn’t “break” them.

I have run into many, many sources that have validated the things stated by Gatto and some people, like Mrs. Bonhoeffer understood even back in the early 1900’s —how evil the Prussian type of schools were for destroying individualism and “thinking outside the box”. Creating little socially-molded robots who all think the same exact way—into relativism and godlessness.
Societies perfect for a future Hitler where “Christians” welcomed the removal of crosses, a swastika in its place-—with few exceptions like Bonhoeffer who had parents who dearly protected their minds from the government indoctrination machine.
