Mark Hemingway on The Failures of Public Education

On this episode of Anchored, Jeremy is joined by Mark Hemingway, Senior Writer for The Weekly Standard.  Mark discusses his early education and his unfamiliarity with classical education until 2004, stating how unusual the concept of classical education was in the early years of the renewal. Mark also explains why classical education cannot be accepted by progressives, and how that makes it inconvenient to find great teachers to teach at classical schools. He also addresses the failures of public education, and the mission drift of Catholic classical colleges.
