    This is the book parents and teacher need!

    Don't let the depth of this book scare you. Dr. Hirsch has done a fine job of placing our current education establishment in its historical context. He makes the fascinating argument - a counterintuitive one - in which he says that progressives who seek social change need traditional, knowledge-based education, NOT progressive education (which is the status-quo). He enthusiastically describes and has written Core Knowledge Curriculum. He presents the intriguing 'social justice' and 'fairness' argument for this Core Knowledge and details the reasons why children from disadvantaged homes will benefit because they will catch up. Educating our children must return to traditional teaching methods. It took Dr. Hirsch ten years to make the discovery that students in college do not have basic knowledge. Please buy and study and underline this book - for the sake of our future.

    Good for Teachers

    This book is good for teachers both new and old. It shows that the same arguements have been arond for a while and this education system we have needs to be seriously looked at.
