    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.

    Homeschooling your children can be difficult. Faith, family, finances, and your child's education are just a few of the things you have to consider. And in the midst of it all, you have to find time to take care of yourself.

    Very helpful and helped me adjust my goals and be realistic, but also very repetitive in driving a point. I think that the book itself should be edited better as it can go on and on about the same issue. I also was a bit taken aback that a Christian recommends yoga for relaxation. On the whole, I do recommend it though as it does have some inspiring ideas and is helpful.

    This is the first part of Alexa Polidoro's famous French for Beginners course. After many years of developing and harnessing her language-teaching skills with The French Ecole and Lingomania, Alexa has now created an audio treat for people who wish to learn a new language from scratch, without any pressure, in fun, relaxed and manageable chunks.
