School Reform Again: From Pillar Back to Post | California Progress Report

School Reform Again: From Pillar Back to Post | California Progress Report

Could it be because two decades of reform-driven emphasis on rote learning of the “basics” in math and reading have driven out not only what E.D. Hirsh called cultural literacy but any preparation for the problem solving, the analytical skills, the critical thinking and the creativity that advanced skills require?
