Mark Edmundson teaches English at the University of Virginia. For him,
teaching is a vital endeavor in which the very souls of his students are
at stake. In his recent book, Why Teach?, Edmundson “reminds
us of the power strong teachers have to make students rethink who they
are and who they might become,” says Michael S. Roth, president of
Wesleyan University, in a New York Times review. “This is what a real education is all about.”
