Discuss "The Making of Americans" with the Progressive Book Club

The Progressive Book Club will be discussing "The Making of Americans" by E.D. Hirsch at the April meeting.

Book:  The Making of Americans
Author:  E.D. Hirsch
ISBN:  9780300152814

Described by Tattered Cover:  Why, after decades of commissions, reforms, and efforts at innovation, do our schools continue to disappoint us?  In this comprehensive and thought-provoking book, educational theorist E. D. Hirsch, Jr. offers a masterful analysis of how American ideas about education have veered off course, what we must do to right them, and most importantly why. He argues that the core problem with American education is that educational theorists, especially in the early grades, have for the past sixty years rejected academic content in favor of “child-centered” and “how-to” learning theories that are at odds with how children really learn.  The result is failing schools and widening inequality, as only children from content-rich (usually better-off) homes can take advantage of the schools’ educational methods.Wednesday, April 14, 2010 at 7:00 PM
