12 Things Really Educated People Know
This list was compiled by John Taylor Gatto, a teacher in New York City for 30 years and selected the state’s Teacher of the Year three times. Gatto is the author of 6 books, including the wonderfully and colorfully titled Weapons of Mass Instruction (2008).
It is a wonderful and succinct list, one that I believe everyone should thoughtfully consider and most to enthusiastically adopt. I am particularly fond of #s 4 and 5 on his list.
