Hour 1

David Rodriguez

"David Rodriguez is a passionate advocate for empowerment and respect in education. After selling a business at age 26, he moved to South Korea to teach English at a private school. Having a background in biotechnology and healthcare, he founded Education Options to empower parents and students in education. In 2014 he started an Expo in San Jose, CA, where parents can meet innovators in education and easily research schools that empower students, like Montessori schools, Democratic schools, homeschooling co-operatives, and unschooling. More recently, he is republishing John Taylor Gatto's 2015 edition of, "The Underground History of American Education", which has a Foreword by Dr. Ron Paul.

David's previous interviews:

"The World's Most Courageous Teacher" reveals the inner circle secrets of the American school system. The legendary schoolteacher, John Taylor Gatto, invested over 10 years of dedicated research to uncover some of the most alarming ideas and writings by the creators and advocates of mandatory attendance schooling, which show where the system came from and why it was created. He combined these facts with his personal experience as a teacher for 30 years in New York public schools, where he won many awards, including being named State Teacher of the Year twice, and has authored an all-time classic. This book was originally published in 2001, and has been printed a number of times. However, this updated version includes new essays from the author, as well as contributions from Dr. Ron Paul, David Ruenzel, and Richard Grove. This is the first of a 3 book volume which will help the reader gain a solid understanding about the American school organization and many of the hidden, yet powerful parts. In this first of set, Mr. Gatto's humble yet bold personality, mixed with humor and class, makes it an enjoyable read, despite the importance and implications of the subject. Mr. Gatto says, "It's time to take our schools back. If they mean to have a war, let it begin now."

The Summerhill School, the Radical Educational Experiment That Let Students Learn What, When and How They Want (1966) 

Among the political and social revolutions of the 1960s, the movement to democratize education is of central historical importance. Parents and politicians were entrenched in battles over integrating local schools years after 1954's Brown v. Board of Education. Sit-ins and protests on college campuses made similar student unrest today seem mild by comparison. Meanwhile, quieter, though no less radical, educational movements proliferated in communes, homeschools, and communities that could pay for private schools.

Most of these experimental methods drew from older sources, such as the theories of Rudolf Steiner and Maria Montessori, both of whom died before the Age of Aquarius. One movement that got its start decades earlier was popularized in the 60s when its founder A.S. Neill published the influential Summerhill: A Radical Approach to Child Rearing, a classic work of alternative pedagogy in which the Scottish writer and educator described the radical ideas developed in his Summerhill School in England, first founded in 1921.

World Alternative Media

A platform not only for liberty and truth world wide, but a platform for individual independent journalists that care about the message of liberty throughout the world. WAM was born as Winnipeg Alternative Media in March 2013. For years, WAM put out hard hitting reports and truly conquered politics in Canada, changing political awareness, especially in central Canada. In September, 2015, Josh Sigurdson created World Alternative Media. We've done dozens of confrontational pieces including Bilderberg members such as Conrad Black and David Frum, politicians like Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Finance Minister Bill Morneau, Premier Greg Selinger, dozens of other politicians from all 4 big political parties. We hold politicians accountable at our own risk and provide the information Mainstream Media doesn't. We do regular economics reports. We've released several big documentaries and interview renowned experts and personalities. We're journalism by the people for the people.
