Episode details

With school back in session for the year, it’s a good time to take a look at the lessons that we’re passing on to the next generation of children.

Are we giving them the tools that they need to succeed in life?

My guest on the program today thinks there’s room for improvement. And his new book takes aim at the “blame the system” and “blame the victim” cultural narratives that he believes impede kids’ ability to recognize, and harness, their own agency.


Ian Rowe is an educator and entrepreneur, and the founder of Vertex Partnership Academies. He’s a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and a visiting fellow at the Woodson Center. He’s also on the board of advisors for the Foundation Against Intolerance and Racism. His new book is Agency.

Ian Rowe is my guest — today on Lean Out.
