Weapons of Mass Instruction: John Gatto’s NEW Book Now Available! A Schoolteacher’s Journey Through the Dark World of Compulsory Schooling
by John Taylor Gatto

The first printing sold out in four days, but a special arrangement has been made with John Gatto to get a limited number of copies to sell immediately to our supports.
 John Taylor Gatto’s Weapons of Mass Instruction is the long-awaited, critically-acclaimed follow-up to the bestselling classic Dumbing Us Down. Just off the press, this radical work argues that the real function of the modern educational system is to render the masses manageable and to train the next generation for subservience to the state.

Gatto has a long history of questioning the status quo of public education. During his 30th year of teaching, when he was the New York State Teacher of the Year, Gatto rose to national prominence when he quit his job and detailed his reasons for doing so in the op-ed pages of The Wall Street Journal.

The title of this book was first given as a keynote speech at the AERO conference!
