"Do American students learn enough about freedom?"

This Saturday, October 16, the Pope Center for Higher Education Policy will be conducting its annual conference in Raleigh, NC. The conference theme is "Freedom and the American Campus." The venue is the McKimmon Center at N.C. State. "Registration will begin at 8 a.m. on the day of the conference and a continental breakfast will be provided. The cost of the conference is $20 per person."

I have two purposes in mind in mentioning this.

The first is to invite any and all Point of Law readers in the vicinity to attend. Speakers will include high-profile individuals such as David Horowitz, Alan Kors, and Candace de Russy, as well as lower-profile individuals such as . . . yours truly. Which brings me to my second purpose --

I'll be speaking on a panel devoted to the question, "Do American students learn enough about freedom?" I have already written up some brief remarks, but I thought I'd take advantage of my guest spot here to ask the assistance of the vast Point of Law readership in thinking about this topic. So, here goes -- If you have any thoughts on this question you'd care to share with me, please email me at medebow--at--samford--dot--edu
