only self-teaching has any lasting value

"only self-teaching has any lasting value" is a quote from this essay by John Gatto,
"Why Schools Don't Educate".

My own thoughts on this topic are in (1) a short essay on exams - "everyone should get an A" - which notes how exams interrupt education; and (2) a one-page suggestion on "how to teach".
