Many parents today are understandably concerned about what their children may be learning, or not learning, in school. Curriculum battles have been waged in several states over what government-run schools should and shouldn’t teach, and even some private schools have seen teachers and parents speak out against ideological bias in the classroom, which they say often occurs at the expense of academic rigor.
A champion of individual liberty, limited government, and free markets, Connor Boyack has been instrumental in supporting parents who want to expose their children to the principles of a free society—principles that are frequently ignored or undermined in schools. Connor is the creator of The Tuttle Twins children’s book series, as well as many other books for children, teens, and adults. He is the president of Utah’s Libertas Institute which he founded in 2011.
Connor joins us on this episode to talk about the current state of American education, what parents can do to help balance the perspectives their children are being taught, and his newly released 240-page Tuttle Twins book on American History.
