Cato Institute holds forum on teaching controversial subjects in public schools

The Cato Institute hosted a discussion “Teaching Kids Controversy: Education, Pluralism and Hot Topics” on May 15, 2017.  I was out of town, but I’ll link to the video as if I had been there.  Valerie Strauss, from the Washington Post, moderates. The link for the video is here.
