In this special 2-hour feature, Third Paradigm hosts the 10th anniversary episode of Unwelcome Guests. This show looks forward and backwards at whether schools at the university, secondary, and elementary levels are serving the greater good of society or the greater wealth of CEO’s. In celebration of 520 episodes, this show begins by reading Lyn Gerry’s introduction to the very first edition of Unwelcome Guests. In the second hour, an alternative media forum called the UniverseCity is cited, with an invitation to listeners to join.
Third Paradigm is written, performed, and produced by Tereza Coraggio. Please contact her at tereza(at)thirdparadigm.org with comments or if airing this show.

Multimedia transcripts and all things web are produced by Mike Scirocco. This episode is posted at http://www.thirdparadigm.org/3p_062.php.

We start by looking at the current state of college financing through two episodes of the radio show Third Paradigm. The excerpts are from “The Student Loan Scam” and “Wossamotta U.” Then Ben Manski from Unwelcome Guests #345 looks at college costs a generation ago, and how corporatization has accompanied the rise in tuition. This episode was called “Dumbed Down, Buttoned Down, or Locked Down – Throwaway People in a Disposable Culture.” The first hour ends with a reading from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig.

In the second hour, Ken MacDermottRoe of History Counts interviews John Taylor Gatto in his episode, “Dumbing Us Down.” Then Kenneth Dowst of New World Notes plays the conclusion of one of John Taylor Gatto’s talks, followed by an excerpt from Jonathon Kozol, who observes the same phenomenon but reaches a different solution. Data is presented from Elizabeth Warren and Amelia Warren Tyagi’s book “The Two-Income Trap.”
