Review

PRAISE FOR THE CORE KNOWLEDGE SERIES

"A new vision for the education of America is being tested in Florida--and it works."
--Life magazine

"I wanted to take a moment and thank you for the knowledge I am able to give my children through your series. They absorb the information like sponges and can't get enough of it. It is clear to me that children have the capability to learn so much more than is expected of them in most schools!"
--A parent, Florida

"Core Knowledge has increased the enthusiasm and commitment of our teachers, and our rising standardized test scores show that the program is effective."
--Gina M. McKinnon, PDC K-6,
Mystic Valley Regional Charter School, Malden, Massachusetts

"We credit Core Knowledge for the improved achievement levels of our socioeconomically disadvantaged students."
--Joan Jamieson, Principal, Santa Barbara Community Academy,
Santa Barbara, California
