52 books :: book 20 :: Dumbing Us Down

I finished this book in only two days, it isn't very long and it was just perfect. Dumbing Us Down is written by John Taylor Gatto and is one of those books that many homeschoolers have read and appreciated. It's been on my list of books to read for a few years now. I am so glad I finally read it. It is more about what is wrong with compulsory schooling than a homeschool manual, but I think it's just as important to read.

Next book: Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer  
I have decided to read Eclipse again since the movie is coming out at the end of june, and I don't remember how the story goes.. Here is a trailer for the movie:


  1. From the sublime to the ridiculous?!

  2. Yeah, it was a good one! I read it a couple years back in an afternoon...just couldn't put it down. It's amazing what we're willing to 'take' from the 'system' without question.

    Hopefully more people will read it and make some different choices for themselves and their children.
