Quotation Of The Day:Vocabulary And Education

From E.D. Hirsch:
It isn’t overstating the case to say that the most secure way to predict whether an educational policy is likely to help restore the middle class is to focus on the question: Is this policy likely to expand the vocabularies of 12th-graders?
Hirsch may be correct, but his Common Core disciples and their STEM allies aren't producing those policies.
