Praise
"Those who consider Hirsch an aged crank who wants to stuff public schools into a jingoistic straitjacket should read this....intriguing, irresistible book....So should those who think our children need more and better instruction in their historical and literary roots. He lays it all out for foe and friend to judge, in the clearest form since his ground-breaking 1987 book, CULTURAL LITERACY."
"Based on research in cognitive studies and results from 'core knowledge' schools, Hirsch's case is clear and compelling. His book ought to be read by anyone interested in the education and training of the next generation of Americans."
