Episode-1992- An Outsider Turned Insider’s View of Government Schools — 11 Comments

  1. I had never heard the cover version of that song. I grew up only knowing the original and do still like it better. I do agree though you usually end up liking the one you hear first. For example thr talking heads version of ” Take me to the River” I had never heard the original until years later but still like the cover better

  2. I really enjoyed this interview. I took interest in his assessment of our schools. I was also very interested in his space project with the children. That project could sure ignite interest that parents could guide for an excellent shared experience.

  3. This was an excellent interview. His observations are spot-on. I’d like to especially commend his advice that all parents – home, private, or government school – read along with their children. The decline in reading has been going on a long time and that makes it doubly important to be the model for your child.

  4. Great interview!

    Albert Einstein said “It is little short of a miracle that modern methods of instruction have not already completely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry…. I believe that one could even deprive a healthy beast of prey of its voraciousness if one could force it with a whip to eat continuously whether it were hungry or not…”

  5. I LOVE spacey stuff, and agree that of all the terrible things the government does NASA is the least terrible and most interesting. Buuuuuut…
    …still waiting on that return on investment check from NASA … lmao

  6. Outstanding guest and interview, Jack! This is the type of content that makes TSP such a great resource.
