About Education 005: A former New York teacher of the year, Gatto is probably the most interesting writer/speaker on education today. He shows that our bureaucratic schools and our bureaucratic society just get in the way of learning. He often contrasts modern America with 19th century America, where family, work, and democratic self-government let people educate themselves. His knowledge of the key players in the history of education is unparalleled.
