Episode 153 - Connor Boyak, Creating Passion-Driven Education
Connor Boyack is founder and president of Libertas Institute, a free market think tank in Utah. Under his leadership, the organization has pioneered a number of successful policy changes, in a wide range of issues—property rights, civil liberties, parental rights, economic liberty, government transparency, and education reform. Connor is the author of ten books, including the popular Tuttle Twins children's series that teaches young kids about the principles of liberty. He lives with his wife and two homeschooled children in Lehi, Utah.
Quotes: "For me the constitution is layer on top of these principles, is not a principle unto itself...especially when you're going to tackle something that big and boil it down for small children, you are going to leave some essential stuff out."
"I think it is the school system that really hampers, impedes and in many ways completely eliminates that natural desire of curiosity that needs to be rehabilitated for adults later in life and maybe some never get that back."
