[User Picture]12:35 pm - Time to get geared up for NaNoWriMo...
And no, I'm not going to actually enter the main competition 'properly' either. It's a degree of pomp and circumstance I don't feel the need to partake in. I'll simply write, and see where I end up at the end of that month.

But that's not the real point of this post. The real point is to make (yet another link) to John Taylor Gatto's (in)famous speech.

With a question for you all... read the article. Read it throughly... then, Answer these questions after reading the above-linked article, so you understand the statements. 0 means you never saw the lesson at all. A 1 would mean you saw it, but avoided or untrained it later. A 10 means you acknowledge it, understand it, and welcome it. A 9 means you recognize yourself using the 'lesson' habitually, but don't know (yet) how to change it, or of any working replacements to change to for yourself.

Poll #335007 Which of John Taylor Gatto's 6 Lessons did you avoid?

What year did you start school, that you remember?

What year did you finish school, that you remember?
