John Taylor Gatto Website:

"Our official assumptions about the nature of modern childhood are dead wrong. Children allowed to take responsibility and given a serious part in the larger world are always superior to those merely permitted to play and be passive. At the age of twelve, Admiral Farragut got his first command. I was in fifth grade when I learned of this. Had Farragut gone to my school he would have been in seventh."
Sometimes I realize that I haven't been sharing my reading list; mostly this is because I don't really think about it as a reading list.
