On March 26, 2019 at 4 pm, Fordham and Hoover will host two speakers on schools, patriotism, and illiberalism.

William Damon, director of the Stanford Center on Adolescence, will argue that schools must foster in their students a sense of purpose and a positive attachment to their society.

Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, will argue that good education means knowledge-seeking via open intellectual debate that challenges one’s  most fundamental beliefs and values.
