  1. John Taylor Gatto: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Institutionalised Schooling (1998)

    A former New York teacher of the year, Gatto was probably the most interesting writer and speaker of his time on education. He showed that our bureaucratic schools and our bureaucratic society just get in the way of learning. He often contrasted modern America with 19th century America, where family, work, and democratic self-government let people educate themselves. His knowledge of the key players in the history of education was, and probably still is, unparalleled.

    In memory of a Great American: John Taylor Gatto December 15, 1935 to October 25, 2018

  2. To The Best Of Our Knowledge: Learning Outside The Box

    Big box education is on the way out. Instead, imagine a future with schools of every variety available for mixing and matching, like sushi on a platter. Micro-schools, Waldorf Schools, part-time schools and more. And non-school alternatives like internships and single classes. That's the future as seen by Matt Hern, an advocate for what he calls de-schooling. In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, learning outside the box. And, redefining normal for kids on the short bus.

    Jonathan Mooney says that "normal" is a social construct, not a medical one. Dan Zanes writes music for children of all ages. Matt Hern advocates alternative education. Michel Piechowski describes the way gifted children experience their lives. Sherman Alexie tries to teach an end to tribalism.

  4. The Origins of COVID-19: Policy Implications and Lessons for the Future

    Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellows David Asher and Miles Yu and expert panelists for a discussion on the origins of COVID-19, policy implications and lessons for the future.

    One year after the WHO declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a pandemic, the exact origins of this devastating virus remains unclear. Although almost all established experts conclude that China was the locus of the initial major outbreak, important questions remain regarding exactly where, how and why the virus spread. What is beyond reasonable doubt is that China took myriad actions that served to obfuscate, confuse, and even deceive the world, and continues to stymie efforts to understand the timeline of the pandemic.

    This panel will discuss questions around the origins of COVID-19, and will consider what the U.S. policy response should be if the Chinese government does not cooperate with investigations on this matter. Panelists will also discuss lessons from the past year for preventing future pandemics and other biological threats. Please join Hudson Institute for a discussion on this timely topic.
