E. D. Hirsch, Jr.’s New Book Affirms Why Knowledge Matters

"Only a well-rounded, knowledge-specific curriculum can impart needed knowledge to all children and overcome inequality of opportunity.”

In Why Knowledge Matters, E. D. Hirsch, Jr., tackles current issues in education, including over-testing of students, flawed evaluation of teachers, and misguided implementation of the Common Core. 

Most of all, he explores the persistence of failed theories that continue to stand in the way of excellence and equity in education.

You can order Why Knowledge Matters from the Core Knowledge Foundation.

A chapter adapted from Why Knowledge Matters is featured in the The Atlantic—“Don’t Blame the Teachers.
