  1. Hi Brett,
    I just wanted to thank you for your great work capturing JTG’s UHAE chapters… I’ve starting reposting these onto my Facebook page. I find them a palatable sized dose of the complex ideas and evidence to support these ideas in John’s writing. I’ve just subscribed to your site too. It’s a small token of my appreciation for the work you are doing and the value I place in it, and in what it is allowing me to teach myself. I am beginning to spend a lot of time on the cluster of sites which you and your peers (Jan, Richard, Henrik, James, etc) are creating… and I love it.
    Stay strong!

  2. Great website! John Taylor Gatto is brilliant. I got his book, The Underground History of American Education, as soon as it came out back in the 90s. Really it’s about so much more than just education. It’s about the way the world really works and those who are always trying to master the common people. Keep up the good work.
