Education analyst Max Eden joins Andrew and Beth for a wide-ranging discussion on the issues facing today’s eductaion system. Eden describes what led to him to a career studying education policy and we discuss his explosive and bestselling book about the Parkland school shooting, which concluded that progressive “restorative justice” policies in the school led to the horrific incident.
Eden also gives us an update on the Biden administrations proposed changes to Title IX rules and their impact on girls sports. We also discuss what states like Florida are doing to combat progressive ideology in public schools and we talk about the rapidly growing movement for school choice.
