2009-03-07 John Taylor Gatto on “Open Source Education”

John Taylor Gatto made a speech on the 7th of March this year, and the video from homelandstupidity.us is embedded above. It is also available to buy on DVD from booktv.org and you can download the 700Mb FLV video direct (and play it using the free software VLC).

I also recently found an audio recording on archive.org of John making a short speech and then reading a chapter of his latest book, “Letter to my Granddaughter,” at the unSchooling Oppression conference, November 6, 2007.

The first chapter Weapons of Mass Instruction was published in Ode Magazine, and last year I tracked down Alexandre Innis’ Principles of Secondary Education and you can download a ZIP of all the the pages which John references.
