Weapons of Mass Instruction: A Schoolteacher's Journey Through the Dark World of Compulsory Schooling


John Taylor Gatto’s Weapons of Mass Instruction, focuses on mechanisms of traditional education that cripple imagination, discourage critical thinking, and create a false view of learning as a byproduct of rote-memorization drills. Gatto’s earlier book, Dumbing Us Down, introduced the now-famous expression of the title into the common vernacular. Weapons of Mass Instruction adds another chilling metaphor to the brief against conventional schooling.
