The Schools We Need and Why We Don’t Have Them  

by E.D. Hirsch

Dr. Hirsch makes a strong argument for a content-rich curriculum providing commonality between schools. His attack on the education "thought-world", especially what often passes for "research" in education, is penetrating. However, his bias against accelerated academics for capable students is in conflict with his general focus on achievement.
