Download Hour1 Download Hour2The show this week features two friends from different generations who dish the dirt on the US forced schooling system and the tax-exempt foundations which engineered it. Our main interview is Norman Dodd, chief investigator of the 1953 'Reece Committee' on Tax Exempt Foundations, set in context by a reading from John Taylor Gatto's Underground History of American Education. Next it is Charlotte Iserbyt, ex-senior policy advisor in US Department of Education, followed by the first half of a 2004 Radio Free School interview with John Taylor Gatto.
Wikipedia notes that the most controversial of his recollections is the following off the record quote:Lyn Gerry's reading of The General Education Board And Friends, a section of John Taylor Gatto's Underground History of American Education, which summarises the once prominent and widely understood role of tax exempt foundations in setting educational policy. This continues into our second hour, after which we hear a short section from Charlotte Iserbyt, recounting her gradual disillusionment with the reality of policies and goals as a policy advisor in US Department of Education under Ronald Reagan. We conclude the show with the first half of a 70 minute Radio Free School interview with John Taylor Gatto from December 2004, entitled Outing School.
Thanks to Radio Free School for the John Taylor Gatto interview. Thanks to G. Edward Griffin for the Norman Dodd interview.
