Robert Jackson

Robert Jackson serves as the Founding Director of the Great Hearts Institute. He was formerly an associate professor of English and education at The King’s College (New York), where he developed a minor that explores the 2500-year tradition of the liberal arts. His research focuses on the debates in the early twentieth century between progressives and classicists over the direction of public schools. He also works on the integration of poetry and the arts across the liberal arts curriculum. When he’s not pushing poetry on the street-corner, he’s probably hawking history to his four kids, à la the home-school dad.
