How do we promote critical thinking and educate students in this new and chaotic American moment?

  • Howard Fineman, Global Editorial Director of the Huffington Post and Lecturer at the Annenberg School for Communication
  • John L. Jackson, Jr., Dean of the School of Social Policy and Practice and Richard Perry University Professor
  • Charles Sykes, Senior Fellow at the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute and conservative commentator
