Joltin' Joe and the Pursuit of Excellence: An Interview with Stephen Jay Gould.
Goldberg, Mark F.
Phi Delta Kappan, v78 n5 p395-97 Jan 1997
Award-winning science author and Harvard professor Stephen Jay Gould shares some views on education and contemporary American culture. Gould's most enthusiastic school memory is singing in an all-city chorus. Harvard students are bright and motivated but have no shared culture, historical perspective, or foreign language proficiency. Gould favors small classes, a rigorous curriculum, and a common body of knowledge. (MLH)
