The information revealed in Gattos work should have hit national scandal level, long ago.
For a brief encapsulation, his History Tour is excellent:
It was interesting to me to read about how, as a school teacher in New York, Gatto had to skirt, bend, or even break the established policies to facilitate the actual education of his students.

Speaking of Gatto, freeper vikingd00d’s Dewey quotation is not found in Gatto’s 400-page “Underground History of American Education,” either.
Until we can cite a source from the works of Dewey, I will assume that the source is Ann Coulter, per the citation from freeper St_Thomas_Aquinas.
