Product description

Review

"Readers cautious about a nationalistic, uniform approach to educating youth will discover in Hirsch's manifesto several compelling reasons for doing so, including the indisputable fact that a unified nation is better equipped to cooperate on international matters than one as polarized as the U.S. in the 21st century. . . . A persuasive, scientifically sound case for an education revolution."--Shelf Awareness for Readers

A fervent plea for reforming American schools.--Kirkus Reviews

"Guided by those words over his long, admirable, and prolific career, E. D. Hirsch, Jr. has worked patiently to correct the errors of the false prophets of progressive pedagogy and to restore the public purpose of American education and its founding ideals. It is up to the rest of us now to follow his lead."--City Journal

"Our dedicated, hard-working teachers across this nation wish to teach children in a manner that will serve them for a lifetime. Let's give them the skills and freedom to do just that. Whether you agree with him or disagree, a good place to start that process is by listening to people like E.D. Hirsch Jr."--Daily Memphian

Hirsch has long endured accusations of elitism, but he emphasizes here that his work has always been driven by a desire to help the least privileged children succeed. It's those kids, he says, who suffer the most from faddish educational theories that have stripped schools of academic substance.
--Ron Charles, Washington Post Book Club

This kind of shared, unifying, patriotic education is needed now more than ever. Reading Hirsch's new book is a good starting place.--Jenna A. Robinson, president of the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal


"Profound, vital and correct. Hirsch highlights the essence of our American being and the radical changes in education necessary to sustain that essence. Concerned citizens, teachers, and parents take note! We ignore this book at our peril.--Joel Klein, former Chancellor of New York City Public Schools

"Education-policy thinker and provocateur Hirsch reignites the continuing debate over the content and value of contemporary elementary education in the United States.. . . Valuable for the ongoing education debate."--Booklist
