WSJ.com - Twenty-Five Years Later, A Nation Still at Risk
If you're interested in K-12 education reform, see my note below. -John
Readers: Since my oldest is nearing school age, I've become very interested in educational thought and I have begun to research the debate about the best way to educate our children. I know I still have much to read and learn on this topic, but I recently finished a book by E.D. Hirsch called "The Schools We Need & Why We Don't Have Them." It's more than a decade old, but I found his arguments and diagnosis still very much on the mark for what continues to be argued today. I highly recommend this book.
Here's a link to Amazon book reviews:
If any of you have read other books on this topic, I'd like to hear any suggestions you have for future reading.
