I had researched where our compulsory school attendance laws came from a few years ago. I wasn't sure that this book would offer much more than I already knew. Wow, was I surprised! I've been reminded once again how dooped we've been as a society. Each chapter is on a different subject within the school system and is written by a specialists within that subject matter. A wide range of information is offered. These are hard facts, not opinions. Know in your gut that something is awry with our education system? Indoctrination will answer many questions that you have any ones that you didn't know existed.
