Acerca del autor

Charles Murray is the W. H. Brady Scholar of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and author of the book Real Education. In this interview, hosted by Luis Figueroa, he talks about the problems of education in the United States and how society has given college degrees disproportionate significance. The problem with this way of thinking, according to Murray, is that young people find themselves pursuing achievement only in the academic environment. Murray emphasizes the importance of students focusing on areas where they are the most productive and analyzes the role, influence, and responsibilities of the academically gifted.
