Would you like to ask John Taylor Gatto a question?

For your question to be considered, please review these guidelines:

1. If you are asking a question that pertains to your family and/or children, please be sure to include the gender(s), age(s), personality, and interests of each person. (If you feel the retelling of a pertinent backstory or experience would be valuable for John to know in order to offer a useful response, please include that information as well.)

2. Don’t ask more than one question
3. Don’t ask if you already know the answer
4. Don’t ask him to predict the future
5. Don’t ask rhetorical questions, or use a question to state a position or to be silly; otherwise, ask anything

Since his boyhood, John has had eclectic interests; from earliest his recollections he has been interested in everything under the
sun, but does not claim expertise in everything (if anything!); however, he is interested and willing to render candid opinions in any area one prefers (except medical advice), as long as one agrees to take his response to a question as merely a personal opinion, rendered free of charge or hidden agenda.

Send your question to: askjohn@johntaylorgatto.com

Due to his energy limitations, every question will not be answered, but all questions are welcome.

John’s newest book release is in Summer, 2015:

“The Underground History of American Education”

  1. JTG to Vermont independent building contractor:
    "You say that you could set the school building up to code in all respects for barely 25% of what the state of Vermont paid for the new school building? Why didn't you submit a bid for the job?

    Independent building contractor: "I couldn't! I would never work in Vermont again if I tried to. "

    That says everything, doesn't it? One hardly knows whether to laugh or cry.
