This is a 55-minute video interview with Roger Kimball, an art critic and political commentator.

It is not light reading, but I wanted to link it here as a resource for people who are seriously researching what is going on in higher education. It will help you understand why we should not be aligning our teaching of American History, or other subjects, with the philosophies prevalent in higher education. Colleges and Universities, with rare exceptions, exclusively teach Type #2 Education.
