296 | Richard Reeves: Why Modern Boys and Men Are Struggling and What to Do About It

Richard V. Reeves, Brookings Senior Fellow and author of Of Boys and Men: Why the Modern Male Is Struggling, Why It Matters, and What to Do About It, joins The Realignment to discuss how decades-long social and economic changes have left boys and men struggling in the classroom and the workforce, how and why the educational system favors girls and women, but the labor market favors men, and the idea of "equality of opportunity" in America by revisiting his previous book: Dream Hoarders: How the American Upper Middle Class Is Leaving Everyone Else in the Dust, Why That Is a Problem, and What to Do About It.
