    If you are currently in college don't read this one I wanted to return all my books and hitchhike straight back to Jersey It is however a uite insightful easy read It was orginially a printed article by Jarry Farber among one of the first black members of the underground in early 1967 Farber discusses with the reader the motives behind schooling in American society and how the exploit and enslave us I found it very interesting especially attending such a conservative university how little things have progressed since its publication

    A fantastic critiue of the school system written around 40 years ago And in 40 years not a single thing has changed The main idea expressed is that the school system is detrimental to the student It forces learning when learning should never be forced The most important lessons you learn have nothing to do with subject; rather they're the implicit inculcation of docility passivity fear of uestioning authority inability to think plan and act by ones self and constant dependence of authoritative figures He also argues for a school that is run by teachers an students So that they choose what to learn when to learn it and the method employed Overall very enjoyable and eye opening read which still has great relevance in this day an age

    The title is uite offensive but the subject matter of the book remains pertinent to this day It deals with our current school system dealing with its students as robots In the interest of hierarchy and organization creativity and actual thought is inhibited More importantly however learning becomes stilted because children are forced to learn what they don't want to Still there aren't really any good solutions even to this day I'd love to be a provo at one point in my life however

    I found The Student and Society essay the most thought provoking and I had to chuckle at Teaching Johnny to Walk Hancock Park in Late September was lovely And A Young Person’s Guide to the Grading System had some great lines in it such as “Can you imagine what would happen if they graded you on sex? The race would die out”

    Really want to read this book If any of you have read it let me know what you thought

    A mind expanding thesis unfortunately not fully fleshed Claims schooling is a 12 year course in servility and doing what you're told I'm inclined to agree
