Absolute Absolution: The Forgiveness of Original Sin by Ministers of Government Schooling.
Gatto, John Taylor
Skole: The Journal of Alternative Education, v11 n1 p13-44 Win 1994
Traces the evolution of public schooling as an attempt by progressives and others to absolve citizens of Original Sin and unweave the world view of traditional Christianity. Argues that the removal from schools of Christian beliefs about morality, labor, self-control, and death signals a wish to collectivize the American masses and restore a pre-Christian Eden. (KS)
