How George Floyd Changed American Education

"There's a pretty direct line from 2014 to 2020 to 2024."

George Packer joins Jamie to discuss how a new round of progressive culture in universities stems from the George Floyd and Black Lives Matter protests.

The Agenda:
—The competitive atmosphere of getting into elite pre-schools
—Rejection of nuance and debate
—How to teach history and civics
—New progressivism and its roots
—Progressive ideologies leading to cancel culture
—Culture wars and anti-Zionism
