The Knowledge Deficit (Paperback)

Closing the Shocking Education Gap for American Children

by E.D. Hirsch, Jr.

"We will achieve a just and prosperous society only when schools ensure that everyone commands enough shared knowledge to communicate effectively with everyone else."
— E.D. Hirsch, Jr.

The Knowledge Deficit illuminates the real issue in education today — without an effective curriculum, American students are losing the global education race. In this persuasive book, the esteemed education critic, activist, and best-selling author E.D. Hirsch, Jr., shows that although schools are teaching the mechanics of reading, they fail to convey the knowledge needed for the more complex and essential skill of reading comprehension. Hirsch corrects popular misconceptions about hot issues in education, such as standardized testing, and takes to task educators' claims that they are powerless to overcome class differences. Ultimately, this essential book gives parents and teachers specific tools for enhancing children's abilities to fully understand what they read.
