against school- by gatto

For this essay, imagine that an unhappy high school student has asked you
what you think the point of school is. Write your response in the form of a
letter (you may write to a specific person that you know, or you may make
up a name). Since we are reading John Taylor Gatto’s essay “Against
School,” use it to respond to the question.

Your essay should answer these questions: What should the purpose of
education be? According to Gatto, what is the purpose of high school as it
currently exists? Based on what you know, to what extent is his argument

To write this essay, you will need to understand Gatto’s argument and then
use details and quotations from it to answer the high schooler’s question.
If you agree with Gatto, why? If not, why not? Do you agree with some
points and not others? Why? Introduce Gatto in your introduction or early
on in the body of your essay. Make sure you spend some time explaining what
Gatto’s argument actually is so that your audience can follow your ideas.
As you answer the high schooler’s question, you may use a story or two from
your own experience or the experiences of those you know. First person
(using “I”) in this essay is acceptable. Your thesis statement will answer
the question “what should the purpose of education be?”
