Reviews

"Hirsch's call for a renewal of rich content in the early grades based on social justice concerns as well as research on student achievement and learning theory is extraordinarily timely and makes Why Knowledge Matters one of the most important education books of 2016. Parents, educators, and policymakers should read it closely." --Gary W. Houchens, Bowling Green Daily News

"Living in an era when news is faked, alternative facts guide national policy, assertions are accepted on the basis of volume or repetition rather than evidence, reasoned debate is ridiculed, and scientific findings are routinely dismissed, it is difficult not to be drawn to a title such as Why Knowledge Matters." --Bertram C. Bruce, Educational Theory
"Hirsch's call for curricular coherency through deep content knowledge is a welcome proposal in an era of narrowed curriculum and skills-based high-stakes testing." --Pamela Bolotin Joseph, Educational Review
"Hirsch's call for 'a better-educated citizenry' should be heeded by educators and administrators alike." --Publishers Weekly
