    The Essential School Sucks, #24 of 50 Theme Three: What It Means To Be Educated We move from self-directed learning to its outcome: critical thinking. Today I'll discuss one of the MOST IMPORTANT aspects of it: our persistent uncritical thoughts and feelings. (November, 2016) What is wrong with John Oliver? What's wrong with Donald Trump? What's wrong the anti-Trump anti-reality protestors? What was wrong with me the other day when I suddenly felt impelled to hatch a conspiracy theory about Trump's election being part of a "larger plan" with little evidence? What's wrong with an alarming number of the interactions in School Sucks Facebook group lately? Political thinking is often quick thinking. Thinking quickly is an evolution-driven feature that was once necessary for our survival. But in a vastly more complex world than the one our species grew up in, this mode of thought is often dangerous and destructive. Look around. Sometimes some people, even libertarians, use mental shortcuts to arrive at faulty conclusions, and then engage in a process of rationalization for those conclusions. In short, we'll explore observations of the left and pro-Trump right over the last year with the valuable lessons from Daniel Kahneman's book Thinking, Fast and Slow. The goal is utilize examples of thinking errors to avoid making them ourselves, often without even noticing.

We begin our discussion with an exploration of the common learning theories practiced in public school and higher education, along with a cost/benefit analysis of each: behaviorism, cognitivism, and (social) constructivism. We also touch on connectivism and mindset theory. In future conversation(s) we'll cover additional behaviors and practices that can greatly enhance both the learning and thing processes, including The 20-Hour Rule, the Six Thinking Hats, the Trivium Method, attributes of self-directed learning and strategies for critical thinking in everyday life.

Favorite School Sucks neighbor Zak Slayback returns to offer some key 2021 updates to his past advice for young people at the beginning of their careers. Our previous conversation on this topic, called How High School Students Can Get Ahead In Their Careers [PODCAST #583], covered: Why young people need to start personal websites while in high school, and how this website can work as a portfolio, showcase of personality, a canvas and as insurance How to contact an existing expert in the area you want to go into, getting a better idea of how to get started Methods of signaling and building a portfolio growing your network of people who are a few steps ahead of you We'll make some adjustment to previous advice, and discuss what advice still stands and why. We'll also look at the big picture of politics, society, tech, and the hellstorm that's certainly on its way. Sorry. Additions include: - seriously ask yourself why you need to be on social media - how deep are your options? how fragile is your situation? - what consulting opportunities exist for you?

She joins me for a fast-paced but fairly comprehensive discussion on unschooling and choice and her unschooling experiences, influences and philosophy. Unschoolers and Reading Sandra share the stories of her three children learning to read, and how there might not always be clear incremental steps. A Mindset For Unschooling "read a little, try a little, wait a while, watch" - patience what are we watching for? addressing problems a discomforts appreciation of choice and projecting optimism power-with, instead of power-over relationships, partnership beware of blindly "supportive" unschooling communities Full Show With Sandra: Sandra Dodd – On Unschooling and Choice [PODCAST #585] (https://schoolsucksproject.com/sandra-dodd-on-unschooling-and-choice-podcast-585/) PART TWO: Pam Laricchia is the creator of the blog livingjoyfully.ca - an amazing, well-organized resource for people exploring how to live and learn without school.

He worked closely with unschooling pioneer John Holt on the Growing Without Schooling Magazine, and in the mid-1980s he took over as publisher of GWS and the president of Holt Associates. Today Pat runs the website JohnHoltGWS.com, which archives all the issues of the magazine, plus a variety of unschooling books and resources. He joins me to discuss the history of unschooling (the idea and the movement), his experiences as an unschooling parent, his relationship with John Holt and the language we use to convey our ideas. Pat's Personal History of Unschooling He and his wife raised three girls, and while embracing the unschooling philosophy, they left the door into and out school open for them. The embrace was a very gradual process, from idealism about teaching to John Holt's impact on his ideas about learning. The importance of avoiding the creation of an adversarial relationship with school in the minds of children.

    The Essential School Sucks, #9 of 50 Theme One: The Real Problems With Public School This final show - thoroughly remastered - about the problems of K-12 public schooling, is primarily focused on the recent dark history, Outcome-Based Education, how it was applied to the children of the 90s, and how it has been "perfected" since then. Original Notes: Today's show is a followup to the previous conversation with Dave Smith - a deeper level of exploration of the history of school, covering a longer period of time, and showing the progression of control over the public mind. (Edited Audio from Brett on Free Man Beyond the Wall) Pete's question: what you believe is the biggest conspiracy behind turning the schools into the indoctrination centers they are today? It's hard to pick just one. A STORY OF INCREASING LEVERAGE OF SCIENTIFIC MANAGERS (AND BOILED FROGS) 1840s-1930s - Mandatory public education in America began as part of a quest for a perfect society with the Puritans in Massachusetts who were seeking a religious utopia - Prussian system replaces the predictability of slavery in a labor force, and to standardize immigrants to that predictability - social and industrial harmony - The dramatic shift from family and community-based approach to an industrial, collectivist approach - there's no going back - This quest was soon taken up by Progressives and democratic socialists who were seeking a secular utopia "So a precedent is set, collectivism is ratcheted up at every stage and with every turn of the screw, the system becomes more accepted. It become harder and harder to imagine society without it and all that it does becomes...fine, and once it's fine it becomes invisible." 1930s-1970s - Louis Alber, head of National Recovery Act New York 1933: “Russia and Germany are attempting to compel a new order by means typical of their nationalism – compulsion. The United States will do it by moral (per)suasion. Of course we expect some opposition, but the principles of the New Deal must be carried to the youth of the nation. We expect to accomplish by education what dictators in Europe are seeking to do by compulsion and force.” - Teacher training (1967-1974)run by a nexus private foundations, academia, corporations, think tanks and govt agencies, coordinated through the US Office of Education (three examples below) + Designing Education for the Future, by Education Department says education is a means to achieve economic and social goals of a national character + Behavior Science Teacher Education Project (1968 Michigan State University) predicts "chemical experimentation" on children? + Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives as "a tool to classify the ways that individuals are to act , think or feel as the result of some unit of instruction" 1980s-Present - Outcomes-Based Education and the remediation of improper thoughts - Peg Luksik "Who Controls Our Children" - student profiling and data-sharing - The Dark Side Of Nationwide School Tests By B.K. Eakman: "if behavior-modification curricula can be brought into the classroom as legitimate learning material; if teachers, or even bona fide mental-health workers, can use the schools to "treat" youngsters for real or imagined psychological problems - then are schools really educational institutions or day-care clinics?"

Unfortunately now more than ever, school continues to make good on its promise to mold children into "good" citizens. But is there a silver lining? Jay says yes.

    The Essential School Sucks, #5 of 50 Theme One: The Real Problems With Public School Dr. Peter Gray was a research professor of psychology at Boston College, and author of Free to Learn: Why Unleashing the Instinct to Play Will Make Our Children Happier, More Self-Reliant, and Better Students for Life (https://amzn.to/3sJOtcu). Peter serves on the Organizing team for the Alliance of Self-Directed-Education. He also runs a blog on Psychology Today called Freedom to Learn, where he regularly explains and promotes self-directed education from a variety of angles. Today Peter and I discuss creativity and critical thinking - two skills we agree are left underdeveloped (or even damaged) by public school and college. On critical thinking, Peter has referenced studies and surveys that reveal about 50% of employers are dissatisfied with entry-level, college graduate employees (PayScale Inc.) and that college does little to improve higher level thinking (Academically Adrift: Limited Learning On College Campuses - 2011). On creativity, Peter wrote a piece called As Children's Freedom Has Declined, So Has Their Creativity. Peter informs us that there are actually quantitative studies, including the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking, that show a marked decline in children's creative capacity since the 1980s. We discuss the causes of this decline in detail. We finish with a friendly disagreement (then agreement) on the educational merits of video games. In part one we discussed the biological foundations of self-education. LISTEN HERE (https://www.patreon.com/posts/podcast-542-gray-16951940) In part three we'll talk about Peter's vision for self-directed education in the future.

    The Essential School Sucks, #4 of 50 Theme One: The Real Problems With Public School In 2019, teen anxiety and depression levels had reached startling new highs. Then 2020 happened. Dan Sanchez is the Director of Content at the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) and the editor-in-chief of FEE.org. Dan is also the main writing coach for our friends at Praxis. He joins me for a fresh take on a familiar problem: young people are drowning and purposelessness, searching for meaning. Political operators, tech giants, and disingenuous marketers are happy to tap into that desire and angst for their own exploitative purposes, offering young people a pre-packaged "why." John Taylor Gatto said “Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist; it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges; it should allow you to find values which will be your roadmap through life; it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important, how to live and how to die.” Instead schools are teaching dependence. And schools are producing mobs. Students are not given adequate encouragement in authoring their own lives, with too many of them surrendering to the K-12 to college to work pipeline. Along the way, they're handed causes to embrace without question, and thus made useful to various manipulators who don't care about them. Dan and I discuss how these young people can find their way, to rebuild their rudders and develop their own “why." Dan offers advice to both parents and educators.

And this is not a new problem; it's been gradually but steadily progressing for over a century. It's a history worth knowing, because it affected all of us. This episode examines the origins of, and ideologies and motives behind controversial (yet bi-partisan!) school legislation like Common Core and No Child Left Behind, and similar attempts at centralizing control in 1989, and 1967, and 1933, and 1903, depending on where you start the story.

    The Essential School Sucks, # 1 of 50 Theme One: The Real Problems With Public School A monologue about the courageous life and work of John Taylor Gatto, and the story of how he changed my life.How many teachers reluctantly acknowledge the failure of mass compulsory schooling? How many become disheartened but then relegate themselves to quiet conformity? How many hunt for the villains, but simply wind up sniveling behind the closed doors of the teachers' lounge, choosing to blame children and parents?If you've worked in or around the public schools - or even if you simply endured the requisite 15,000 hours as a student - you're likely able to form some rough estimations for these questions.Yet how powerful is the voice of the teacher with the conviction to take action and speak out? In 1991, at the dawn of the information age, John Taylor Gatto was named the New York State Teacher of the Year. Within months of receiving that recognition he resigned, quite publicly, in the op-ed section of the Wall Street Journal. At this time, John was in his mid-fifties. He had a family. He had little savings, and he resided on the notoriously not-affordable island of Manhattan. It was a bold move to say the least, but it marked the beginning of a beautiful new career in education.And he inspired many others to cut their own divergent paths.

Nick Hazelton is a 21-year-old entrepreneur, farmer, media creator, and a School Sucks favorite guest since he first appeared on the show several year ago. He also loves weed. But hold that thought. Circa 2015, Nick told Brett he wanted to leave high school to pursue yak herding. And then he did it! He shared his self-education and self-reliance journey on numerous platforms, including Anarcho-Yakitalism Podcast, School Sucks, The Freedom Feens, and Unregistered With Thaddeus Russell. People who aren't inspired by Nick's story are assholes. Recently, another Millennial, entrepreneurial SSP listener (and past TDZ guest) named Alex Bell (aka Yung Alexx) connected Yung Nick with TDZ co-host Andrew for advice on a new business venture...hemp farming. "What's hemp?" Andrew asked. However, Andrew does understand how to effectively use other people's money and create win-win situations; in just the last year he quickly built a successful real estate/AirBnB enterprise. And Nick currently needs outside investment. Or does he? In a preliminary conversation, Andrew advised Nick on a variety options beyond going to a bank and asking for money. And after listening to Nick describe his goals and the needs behind those goals, Brett and Andrew offer a better solution and a more promising path.

    In this third monthly meeting of the Un-iversity Book Club, we discuss Why We Drive: Toward a Philosophy of the Open Road by Matthew B. Crawford. What appears to be a book celebrating driving as liberation is just as much a condemnation of the "safety-ism" that has so far defined the 21st century, and certainly this new decade. Some snapshots: “Left to its own internal logic, the regime of public safety must find ways to justify its own growing payroll, and its colonization of ever more domains of life. This can always be accomplished through further infantilization of its clients; under the banner of good democratic values.” "Self-driving cars must be understood as one more escalation in the war to claim and monetize every moment of life that might otherwise offer a bit of private head space.” Music: "Drive Slow" Kanye West "Open Road" Slightly Stoopid "Traffic Tickets" The Gadjits We are now on Locals.com!
