Podcast: The Importance of Civics Education

On today’s show, we’re talking about civics. At a time when students across the country lack a basic understanding of government and economics, one university is doing something about it. We’ll feature an interview with Paul Carrese, founding director of the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership at Arizona State University.

We’ll also hear from Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald about what’s wrong with college campuses today. Listen to the full interview below.
