This valedictorian address is available on video at Gnostic Media, but is behind a pay wall. Fortunately, someone in the comments linked to a printed version. That link is beneath the fold.
What courage! This woman stood before her teachers and administrators and fellow students and used words like “brainwashing,” corporatocracy,” “secretive government.” She quoted John Taylor Gatto. She implied that test results do not matter. She challenged other students to demand more, that having to know something because it will be on the test is not enough. She challenged teachers and administrators to break their own chains, being told what to teach and how to teach it. She seems to think that classroom boredom is not necessarily a character building state of being.
She thanked one teacher for waking her up. May we all be so fortunate to have one teacher like that. I was not.
