QotD: "When you take the free will out of education, then you call it schooling..."

"When you take the free will out of education, then you call it schooling...
    "By preventing a free market in education, a handful of social engineers - backed by the industries that profit from compulsory schooling: teacher colleges, textbook publishers, materials suppliers, et al. - have ensured that most of our children will not have an education, even though they may be thoroughly schooled."

    ~ John Taylor Gatto, (retired) award-winning teacher and author of Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling, from his article on 'The 7-Lesson Schoolteacher'.
