The Politics of Cultural Literacy.
Grant, Robert A. D.
International Journal of Social Education, v9 n1 p1-14 Spr-Sum 1994
Contends that E. D. Hirsch's book, "Cultural Literacy," is not a work of scholarship but one of dogma and persuasion. Discusses Hirsch's views in relation to democratic values, the national culture, and both public and private education. Concludes that Hirsch wants to retain public education to impose a conservative ideology. (CFR)
