In this 1964 radio interview, Ayn Rand gives her views on education, including the causes of its decline and the principles that should guide rational educators. Rand discusses such issues as the essential purpose of education, the “flight from reason” caused by philosophers such as Kant, the links between altruism and irrationalism in education, the necessity of guiding children toward intellectual independence, the evils of dogma and indoctrination, the difference between fact and interpretation, some essentials of rational curriculum, the impropriety of forced racial segregation and integration, the parental “responsibility and privilege” to guide their children’s education, and the chaos of college education featuring a “different epistemology in every classroom.”
