This is one of the most enlightening takes on education. Through the interesting lessons Neil teaches his son, we can clearly see the deficiencies of the education system.

He’s such a jerk to his son

Honestly, I wanted to like this. I started with the episode on Native Americans and the content was fabulous. But so many mean comments to and about his son. I realize it’s hard to raise teenagers, I’ve done it, but I think it’s important to resist the urge to belittle them. Even though they can be self centered, retaliation is not a good example.

I continued with the nutrition episode, and about halfway through I had to bail. It’s so unpleasant listening to him diss his boy.
