The Schools We Need & Why We Don't Have Them

by E. D. Hirsch, Jr.

In The Schools We Need, published in 1996, Professor Hirsch traces the philosophies and practices that have dominated American education in this century and shows how failed "progressive" theories have gained a monopoly, despite being discredited by mainstream research. Pragmatic and proven remedies exist and we must turn to them with an open mind, he says, because a sound education is every child's civil right.
