Jennifer Kabbany is editor of the College Fix, a daily news website focused on higher education. In this Freedom Feature interview, Jennifer and Barry discuss the left-leaning bias in academia, and the importance of proactive parenting to enable our young people to discern the truth.
When news headlines are more outrageous than satire, do we have reason to be optimistic about the future?
Ms. Kabbany offer three suggestions to restore critical thinking and objectivity in higher education: promoting the Socratic method, to allow ideas to be openly and freely debated; protecting the STEM fields from critical race theory by focusing on the quality of scientific research rather than racial quotas; and finally, studying the great literary and philosophical works of the past, regardless of the author’s skin colour.
