John Taylor Gatto hates America's schools

I enjoyed the essay Against School, which I ran across on del.icio.us. I was interested to learn that the American school system is based in part on the repressive Prussian school system.

As someone who grew up with a lot of homeschooled kids, I'm not an advocate for home schooling. So I was disappointed to find out that that's Gatto's agenda. Nine Assumptions, Twenty-one Facts is not nearly so convincing as Against School. Gatto also makes the mistake of writing too much, so that his good points (and there are many) start to get lost.
