Description

In this forceful manifesto, Professor E.D. Hirsch, Jr., argues that children in the United States are being deprived of the basic knowledge that would enable them to function in contemporary society. They lack cultural literacy, a grasp of background information that writers and speakers assume their audience already has. A student has little chance of entering the American mainstream without knowing about a silicon chip or the Civil War.
