Too repetitive. Does not apply entirely to Europe
on 19 August 2010
I bought this book because I read an speech (also included in the book) by Gatto, I found the speech great and smartly describing the situation of the education nowadays, even that the book was written 20 years ago!!!.
What I have found in the book is more of the same, each chapter is a repetition of the others, maybe it introduces a new concept, but only one, and not very brilliant, you can read only the first chapter and leave the rest of the book in the self.
I do not mean that the ideas are wrong or bad, I simply mean that this book is a collection of speeches and articles that say more or less the same.
Anyway, it is worth the price.
Another point is that I have found that the situation in Europe, or at least in Spain is not by far the same as in the EE.UU, so many concepts are applicable or do not happen here. It's worth reading to not fall in the same mistakes.
