John Taylor Gatto

Note: This is not a comment page — just a great resource.

You probably know who he is — that maverick teacher who finally left the system and now waxes so eloquent on the subject of education.

Mr. Gatto has more thought-provoking things to say about education than anyone else I’ve read.

What he did when he was teaching was incredible. What he’s doing now is fascinating. Check out this essay on his web site (and consider a contribution): I Quit, I Think (it’s the original Wall Street Journal article with very interesting extras).

Check out some of his other essays, too.
