really liked it

Not my favorite Neil Postman, but still so many, many things to think about. I agree with his major premises but I think that a more accurate description of what is going on in the US today would be called "The Disappearance of Adulthood." He does go over this idea too, and I agree with what he says. In my recent research on education, I have searched for the author who would say "home-school is not the true way," so that I could claim I had read both sides. I think I have found my man. He being one of my favorite authors anyway, I am doubly inclined to take what he says seriously, so my research actually will be well-rounded. Anyway, I still believe in home school, but I also believe in the disappearance of childhood.
