Homeschools & Government Schools (Pam Probst)(The Libertarian Alternative)(2004)
These are Mark Selzer's informative two The Libertarian Alternative show interviews Homeschooling in America (2004) and History of Government Schools (2004) which both feature Pam Probst who dispels urban legends and provides a fascinating history of education in America as it really happened, as opposed to the version typically provided by public school advocates. Among other things, she provides convincing evidence that literacy in America was actually far greater than it is today, and that public schools, rather than increasing literacy, actually led to its decline. One of the more interesting points Probst makes is that there was a tremendous number of publications in print in the early years of the American republic. For instance, Thomas Paine's historically famous pamphlet, "Common Sense," was printed to about a million and a half copies. As Ms. Probst points out, "Someone was reading all those copies!" She also gives a description of how public schools, with the support of major charitable organizations backed by major corporate non-profit trusts of the 19th and early 20th century, succeeded through a combination of propaganda and the appeal of "free" education to wrest control of education from parents and to put it into the hands of the government. This is a must-see video for anyone who has any interest at all in education. 2 x 30 min. long. A must see for everyone.

Video specs:
Video codec: xvid, 624 kbps, 352x256, 30 fps
Audio codec: mp3, 64 kbps, 44 kHz, mono, cbr


Please share this video with others, add links on other forums as I don't know many of them.
