Amazon's summary of Weapons of Mass Instruction: A Schoolteacher's Journey Through the Dark World of Compulsory Schooling says this:

"Gatto demonstrates that the harm school inflicts is rational and deliberate. The real function of pedagogy, he argues, is to render the common population manageable."

Gatto is having health problems.  He was having financial problems in 2011.  I just bought two of his books to help him.

So many non-libertarians worry about the fate of children when you take away public schools.  I  worry about our children in those horrible torture institutions known as schools.  I think civilization's future would be brighter if we eliminated public schools.  Our children shouldn't be a pawn for the teachers' unions.  Gatto is a true hero.
