After reading Dumbing us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling by John Taylor Gatto I came across this mini documentary. Gatto has taught for nearly 30 years in schools in the US. He thinks highly of education, but not of schools: 'School is like starting life with a 12-year jail sentence in which bad habits are the only curriculum truly learned. I teach school and win awards doing it. I should know.' - from 'The Six-Lesson Schoolteacher'. This can be found here: http://www.cantrip.org/gatto.html The video is a little dated, but much of the content is still relevant today. Well worth a watch.
