From the Inside Flap
--Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, author of The Language Instinct and The Sense of Style "Hirsch has done it again. He has produced the most clear and well-grounded argument for why a knowledge-centric education is critical for enhancing educational equity. He pulls no punches. Why Knowledge Matters provides thoughtful solutions to important education issues."
--Susan B. Neuman, professor and chair, Teaching and Learning Department, Steinhardt School, New York University "If you are frustrated and angry about the over-testing of students, the narrowing of the curriculum, the scapegoating of teachers, and the persistence of the achievement gap, you must read this brilliant book. Hirsch persuasively explains how all these phenomena are related, and points the way forward to a better education for all."
--Daniel T. Willingham, professor, University of Virginia E. D. Hirsch, Jr. is the founder of the Core Knowledge Foundation.
