October 23, 2013

Who notices when a 17-year-old student writes a 9,250-word history research paper on the difficulties The New York Times had discussing anti-semitism and the Holocaust? The Concord Review does.

Its founder and publisher, Will Fitzhugh, joins the podcast to discuss the Review, low expectations for students, and why businesses spend $3.1 billion each year teaching employees remedial writing.
