Greg Lukianoff: Pushing Political Correctness on Teachers and the Next Generation

March 11, 2013

A new book explains how U.S. education's commitment to political correctness destroys free speech and its protection of our constitutional democracy. Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education and author of Unlearning Liberty, joins the podcast to talk about how higher education, and especially teachers colleges, stifle thought and discussion and promote leftist groupthink, which in turn pushes progressive ideas onto the next generation. You can also read a review of the book, which discusses its implications for K-12 public schools and teachers there, in Defining Ideas.
