Download Hour1 Download Hour2This week, we begin the final chapter of John Taylor Gatto's The Underground History of American Education, as Gatto drives home the point of the argument he's been making throughout the book, that the system of compulsory schooling has not been put in place to sharpen the intellectual skills of children to be equal to the responsibilities of free citizens, but just the opposite, to dumb them down, to be the malleable subjects of a plutocracy. But first, we hear a radio adaptation of Adam Curtis' The Trap.
