Confederacy of Dunces: The Tyranny of Compulsory Schooling.
Gatto, John Taylor
SKOLE: The Journal of Alternative Education, v12 n1 p1-15 Win 1995
Public schooling fails by educating students to become dependent thinkers; by providing irrelevant curricula; and by weakening social institutions such as family, community, and religion. On the other hand, public libraries give students the freedom to choose what they want to read, encourage critical thinking, and be nonjudgmental of students. (LP)
