Dean Esquith Makes Case for Arts and Humanities in Washington Post’s ‘Answer Sheet’

Washington Post education columnist Valerie Strauss asked Residential College in the Arts and Humanities Dean Stephen Esquith to write a piece for her blog, The Answer Sheet, on liberal education, MSU, and why the arts and humanities are so important now more than ever.  In her introduction, Strauss writes, “…At a time when liberal education is under attack by conservative forces that want higher education to be focused on job skills, Esquith writes about the value of the humanities to the future of democracy, and what a liberal education actually looks like on the ground.”
