    I enjoyed this video. I especially liked the merging of the audio(your reading) and visual components.

    My only criticism is with the pacing. It seemed a bit rushed. If I were an individual who had never heard of Gatto or any of these ideas against public schooling, viewing this video would leave me confused.

    IMO, by slowing it down a bit and giving viewers a chance to process the information without feeling bombarded would be a better approach.

    For your next video installment of this series I recommend using more ambient, slow-paced music. Possibly something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GzOH1g45ZQ&list=FLHNfE2CQobRx-aV_zI2tl8g&index=26

    After my second viewing, I think Mike may be correct – the pacing seemed a little fast. I believe the track Mike suggested may be a little too far in the opposite direction but I think it could benefit from a slightly slower pace.

    Overall, I agree with keegan though and very much look forward to more.

    Music is tricky; we have to be careful about getting flagged for copyright. And we don’t have this down to a science yet. I agree that the pace is a little frantic for the uninitiated. If you can find instrumental covers with a slower pace, please send them along. And thanks for the feedback.

    What’s with the proto-nazi pigeon logo at the beginning?

  6. In my opinion, the pace is useful as an alarm bell to our ADD society, and I feel like the video is not meant to educate an uninitiated viewer on all things Gatto. It seems to serve as a wake up call that might encourage someone to further investigate the ideas presented.

    Nice Job Brett. I have 2 children, 9 and 11 and I my eldest has been in Public school through second grade, Montessori through 5th and home this year. We are all learning how to deschoool and be ourselves. Gatto and you have helped a lot. Thank you. My nine year old is an ideal homeshcooler, he is a nonlinear thinker and does not like to be told what to to. We have been home since the beginning of this school year and we are just starting to get our feet under us (so to speak). We have traveled and Jack my oldest is taking scuba lessons. I recommend it to any one and keep up all your excellent work, please.
