Host Coy Barefoot talks with Leonard Schoppa, the Associate Dean for the Social Sciences and Professor of Politics at the University of Virginia, about the new documentary film, The Slow Way Home, for which Len was interviewed and helped to put together. The film is an incredibly thought-provoking look at one of the starkest and most revealing differences between American and Japanese culture: how kids get to and from school.

In the second half of this episode, Coy talks with Jody Kielbasa, the Executive Vice President and Provost for the Arts at the University of Virginia and Director of the Virginia Film Festival. He previews the upcoming 2016 Festival: who and what is in store for this year’s special event.

"Thomas Jefferson knew what schools were for — to ensure that citizens would know when and how to protect their liberty. It would not have come easily to the mind of such a man, as it does to political leaders today, that the young should be taught to read exclusively for the purpose of increasing their economic productivity." — Media scholar Neil Postman
