    Thirty years in New York City's public schools led John Gatto to the sad conclusion that compulsory schooling does little but teach young people to follow orders like cogs in an industrial machine. With over 100,000 copies in print since its original publication in 2002, this book is collection of essays and speeches and includes a describes the wide-spread impact of the book and Gatto's "guerrilla teaching". John Gatto was a teacher in New York City's public schools for over 30 years and was a New York State Teacher of the Year.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No really.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Coming from a teacher's point of view.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, the pace was good.


    Could you see Dumbing Us Down being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    A movie, perhaps. A TV series will be too slow. Besides most people just want to watch American Idol and who got kicked of the Island.

    On the first day of May, 100 teenage boys meet for a race known as The Long Walk. If you break the rules, you get three warnings. If you exceed your limit, what happens is absolutely terrifying.
