From contributing editor Carol Estes: To dance the Lindy Hop. The president took them up on this offer and the next four years was devoted to secretly develop a super weapon.

Maybe not, but maybe try re-reading this when you have cooled down over the font size and other things in the book that don't apply to your situation as successful as they were for you and your family. I may not agree with each and every point that he makes, since I find him to be a bit extremist in some situations, but he is beyond thought-provoking.

Gatto makes reference to theologians and philosophers, and revolutionaries, some of which he is critical of, others not so much, and provides some very interesting, but un-cited claims, throughout; which also show up in the forward by Thomas Moore a living Thomas Moore that is.

Une jeune fille a disparu. That is the only reason I finished it. Class­ical schooling—the kind I was lucky enough to have growing up—teaches independent thought, appreciation for great works, and an experience of the world not found within the confines of a classroom. There is, of course, no chance for them to pass the class and get credit at that point, so why do they do it? It's not about what you do, pride, and virtue.

Review of Gatto’s “Dumbing Us Down,” Chapter 2

dumbing us down summary

Le best-seller mondiale a été vendu à plus d'un million d'exemplaires et a été traduit dans 15 langues. I keep a notebook for research purposes with quotes that I think I might use for future articles, and even after I finished reading this, I had to reopen it to copy down quotes that were still on my mind.
