Best Of Planet Ertswild

Valeris Plame WilsonPlanet Erstwild host James Moore has another full-tilt boogie of a show planned today. The featured interview is Valerie Plame Wilson, the CIA agent outed by the Bush administration. A movie based on her book Fair Game has been made starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn.

Host James Moore speaks with renowned author, speaker, and educational reformer John Taylor Gatto. If you enjoy having your assumptions challenged, you'll want to hear this man.

Gatto spent 30 years teaching in public schools in New York. He was 3 times awarded the NYC Teacher of the Year before quitting with a Wall Street Journal article, that stated he was tired of hurting children. He contends that, by design, institutional teaching is not really teaching and actually harms children, breeding boredom, fostering obedience, and valuing conformity, competition and testing over promoting original, critical thinking and self-teaching.
