Core Knowledge and Cultural Literacy.
Jenkins, John M.; Pelletier, Karen
International Journal of Educational Reform, v6 n4 p476-81 Oct 1997
Three Oaks Elementary School in Fort Myers, Florida, was the first school to adopt Core Knowledge, an articulated K-6 curriculum promoted by E.D. Hirsch, author of "Cultural Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know" (1987). Hirsch feels that emphasizing skills over knowledge unintentionally injures disadvantaged students. Program specifics and successes are discussed. (11 references) (MLH)
