    179: Myths About Youth, By Mike Males (Article – Circa 2001)

    I found an irresistible book in a used book store called Everything You Know Is Wrong. It was a compilation of articles by alternative media journalists, revisionist historians, and social commentators, which included a piece by Mike Males entitled "Myths About Youth." Since I could not find this article on the web, I decided to share it here. Topics include teen violence, teen drug use, teen suicide, teen sex, the anti-youth agendas of special interests...and the inevitable crackdowns.

CORE TOPIC - Why does school suck?

John Taylor Gatto

CORE TOPIC - What does self-directed education look like?

Peter Gray - Self-Directed Education

The realization that school sucks actually marks the beginning of a new and exciting educational journey.

Welcome to We strive to provide young people with the building blocks of intellectual, financial and lifestyle independence. This includes in-depth explorations into higher-level thinking, organization and productivity, emotional and physical health, habit and lifestyle optimization, history and philosophy, psychology, self-directed learning, entrepreneurship, and communication/negotiation strategies. It's all essential information, but almost none of it is taught in school. Our content is ideal for frustrated high school and college students, home-educating parents, and adults who are interested in independently furthering their education and achieving self-actualization.
