Bryan Caplan on The Case Against Education

Bryan Caplan Answers Questions about His Provocative Ideas.

Bryan Caplan is a provocative thinker who is always willing to teach. His book, Selfish Reasons to Have More Kids: Why Being a Parent is More Fun and Less Work Than You Think, convinced me that it was a good idea to have kids. I talked with him about that book on my podcast 9 years ago!

In this video with philosopher Agnes Callard, he talks about his latest book, The Case Against Education: Why the Education System Is a Waste of Time and Money. He answers questions from Callard and the audience. It is one of the best interviews I’ve listened to with Caplan. Check it out.

  1. I’ve been against compulsory education for years. I homeschooled all of my kids. 😀 I believe in doing what works best for you and your family. I’m really interested in the Acton schools . If I had money, I’d start one.
