The Hollowing Out of America’s Youth – High School Teacher and Author Jeremy Adams

August 3, 2021

Allen Roth, President of Secure America, talks with School Teacher Jeremy Adams, author of "Hollowed Out: A Warning about America’s Next Generation"

Jeremy Adams has spent decades trying to instill wisdom, ambition, and love of learning in his students. But even the best of teachers are witnessing the lack of educational and emotional development in our students. Their curiosity and interests are stunted, their reasoning is underdeveloped, their values are mushy, their knowledge lacking, and, most worrying of all, their humanity is diminished. Hollow Out reveals how a combination of excessive exposure to media (i.e. cell phones), isolation, alienation, from tradition and American values, coupled with the effects of the Covid-19 lockdowns are instigating an avalanche of negative reactions from Generation Z. This is our nation's greatest national security challenge.
