Victor Davis Hanson: Educating for a Self-Governing Republic

December 3, 2013

Victor Davis Hanson is a well-known historian, commentator, and senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. He’s spearheading a new project with Pajamas Media: It’s called the Freedom Academy.  The academy is a series of online lectures about Western civilization, American history, and more, accompanied by a book discussion forum curated by well-known writers and thinkers. Hanson discusses the rot within U.S. education, need for an educated populace, and whether there's hope for America given our current crisis and decline.
