Valedictorian speaks out against schooling...praises John Taylor Gatto
This is a great speech by a young lady who truly is the smartest person in her graduating class. She figured out, after 18 years of indoctrination in public school, she now needs to move on and get a real education.
Watch the school administrators behind her squirm as she talks about the failures of public schooling and gives them advice on how to improve. Kudos to this enlightened valedictorian!
This young speaker is Erica Goldson at Coxsackie-Athens High School graduation on June 25, 2010. Her school is located in John Taylor Gatto's home state of New York.
