Radical Democracy and Our Future: A Call to Action. The Dialectics of Liberty.
Gatto, John Taylor
Journal of Family Life, v2 n1 p40-48 Fall 1995
Examines the relationship between centralization and public education. Suggests that compulsory schooling is key to the increasingly centralized and "managed" nature of society and that the nationalization of schooling has undermined individual rights to liberty and democracy. Advocates that communities be responsible for their children and for what they learn by taking children back from government managers. (LP)
