Summary
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. Thus even if a student has a basic competence in the English language, he or she has little chance of entering the American mainstream without knowing what a silicon chip is, or when the Civil War was fought. A major bestseller that has engendered a nationwide debate on our educational standards, Cultural Literacy is required listening for parents, teachers, and anyone else concerned with our future as a literate nation
