In this episode, we speak with Fr. Anthony Andreassi, principal of Regis High School, the historic Jesuit institution in Manhattan. Fr. Andreassi talks about the school's early twentieth century roots before discussing the challenges faced by Catholic educators today: not just soaring costs and falling enrollment, but also dealing with questions about gender, economic privilege, and the increasingly fractious American culture wars.
Plus, our own Matt Sitman critiques the duplicitous rhetoric of 'national conservatism, a growing movement among conservative intellectuals to systematize the disruptive politics of the Trump presidency.
