John Taylor Gatto

Whoever controls the image and information of the past determines what and how future generations will think; whoever controls the information and images of the present determines how those same people will view the past.— George Orwell, 1984 (1949)

Read John Taylor Gatto's The Underground History of American Education (and thank you, Princess Ennui, for featuring the link on your blog).

Look. Now we're both back (more or less). And I'm back in the "omg, do I homeschool, do I not..." phase.
And then there's that working thing.
Alors. What will we do now? I would like to quit and perhaps go spend the summer with you guys.

Alors. We were supposed to go apartment hunting in France once, weren't we?

Princess, you can jump on our boat, anytime.
