Footnote 2 should read: This particular form of rational psychopathy has been an epidemic in the Northeast for decades, and it has struck my own life more than once. Some think that auto-glass installers send agents through lines of parked cars late at night to crack their windshields on the sensible supposition that in a trade without many practitioners, a decent proportion of new work will go to the creators of the need. Or perhaps the entire guild underwrites the trade, who knows?

Page 309 Paragraph 1 should read: Similarly, endless sequences of so-called "subjects" delivered by men and women who, however well-meaning, have only superficial knowledge of the things whereof they speak, is the introduction most kids get to the liar's world of institutional life. Ignorant mentors cannot manage larger meanings, only facts. In this way schools teach the disconnection of everything.

Page 319 Paragraph 1, line 6, beginning at "all honorable men." should now read: all honorable men-but with decisive help from ordinary citizens, from almost all of us as we gradually lost touch with the fact that being followers instead of leaders, becoming consumers in place of producers, rendered us incompletely human. It was a naturally occurring conspiracy, one which required no criminal genius. The real conspirators were ourselves. When we sold our liberty for the promise of automatic security, we became like children in a conspiracy against growing up, sad children who conspire against their own children, consigning them over and over to the denaturing vats of compulsory state factory-schooling.

New footnote 2 added and indicator 2 is located at end of paragraph 2.
Footnote reads: A Harvard professor with a Teachers College Ph.D., Inglis descended from a long line of famous Anglicans. One of his ancestors, assistant Rector of Trinity church when the revolution began, in 1777 fled the onrushing Republic; another wrote a refutation of Tom Paine's Common Sense, that one was made the first Bishop of Nova Scotia in 1787, and a third, Sir John 1nglis, commanded the British forces at Lucknow during the famous siege by the Sepoy mutineers in 1857. Is the 1nglis bloodline germane to his work as a school pioneer? You 'll have to decide that for yourself.
Paragraphs 1 and 2 are now combined
Page 321 Paragraph 1, line 1, delete the word "this" and replace with "Aldrich's"
Paragraph 1, line 4 , after "in the future "and before "According to James Bryant Conant," new text should read: According to Inglis, the first function of schooling is adjustive, establishing fixed habits of reaction to authority. This prepares the young to accept whatever management dictates when they are grown; second is the diagnostic function. School determines each student's "proper" social role, logging it mathematically on cumulative records to justify the next, sorting, function. Individuals are to be trained only so far as their likely destination in the social machine, not one step beyond. Conformity is the fourth function. Kids are to be made alike, not from any passion for egalitarianism, but so future behavior will be predictable, in service to market and political research. Next is the hygienic function. This has nothing to do with individual health, only the health of the "race." This is polite code for saying that school should accelerate Darwinian natural selection by tagging the unfit so clearly they drop from the reproduction sweepstakes. And last is the propaedutic function, a fancy word meaning that a small fraction of kids will slowly be trained to take over management of the system, guardians of a population deliberately dumbed down and rendered childlike in order that government and economic life can be managed with a minimum of hassle. And there you have the formula: adjustment, diagnosis, sorting, conformity, racial hygiene, and continuity. This is the man the honor lecture in education at Harvard is named after.
