That was a very thoughtful post

I am not a teacher but everything you said pretty much was my guess as to how things are. It can't be easy to teach to students who don't want to learn. And it's understandable for the children to take cues from their parents regarding the importance (or lack thereof) of education. And of course, that has to be demoralizing to (otherwise well-meaning) teachers.

I know Lew Rockwell has mentioned that there is a series of John Taylor Gatto speeches on education but I'm not sure what he's referring to.
