Economist Bryan Caplan Makes the Case Against Education

A conversation about homeschooling, public schools and Caplan's book, The Case Against Education: Why the Education System is a Waste of Time and Money.

Economist Bryan Caplan joined Matthew Nielsen and me on the Educational Freedom Institute podcast to discuss his book The Case Against Education: Why the Education System Is a Waste of Time and Money.

We also asked Caplan, a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center and a professor of economics at George Mason University, about his thoughts on homeschooling during the coronavirus pandemic and his personal experience with the practice. Caplan additionally provided hard-hitting answers to my devil’s advocate questions about homeschooling and the public school system.
