School’s Out – Escaping the Cycle of Compulsory Public Education and Unlearning Authoritarianism with Laurette Lynn

Laurette LynnOn this edition of Demanufacturing Consent, Guillermo is joined by the author of the book Don’t Do Drugs, Stay Out of School and host of Unplugged Mom Radio, Ms. Laurette Lynn.  Guillermo and Laurette discuss the history of compulsory public education and its roots in the Prussian model, developed to increase industrial productivity, encourage authoritarianism, and eventually a totalitarian society.

We explore the notion of school as a mechanism of control, the alternatives to this system, and how parents can regain control of their children’s education.
