Education Means Learning, You Know, STUFF

This USA Today editorial, Our view on education: Cut the knowledge deficit, discusses a new book Tested by Linda Perlstein.

Turns out, stripping our kids’ education of all meaning and content has poor side effects! Who knew?

The editorial proposes the Core Knowledge curriculum by E.D. Hirsch as a fix. If that name looks familiar, yes, he’s the guy that wrote Cultural Literacy.

This would be, generally speaking, the same curriculum tossed overboard by our leading lights in the education field, in favor of diversity and tolerance and and post-modern relativism, and all that other related hoo-ha.

And so everything old … is new again.
