Educated Child : A Parent's Guide from Preschool Through Eighth Grade - 99 edition

Educated Child : A Parent`s Guide from Preschool Through Eighth Grade (ISBN10: 0684872722; ISBN13: 9780684872728)
ISBN13: 978-0684872728
ISBN10: 0684872722

This edition has also been released as:

ISBN10: 0684833492

Summary: The Educated Child defines a good education and offers parents a plan of action for ensuring that their children achieve it. Combining the goals that William Bennett enumerated as Secretary of Education, key excerpts from E. D. Hirsch's Core Knowledge Sequence, and the latest research, it sets forth clear curricula and specific objectives for children from kindergarten through the eighth grade, including:
  • What children
    should be studying and the kind of work they should be doing
  • Important facts to learn and essential reading lists
  • When children should master specific math skills, spelling and grammar basics, and scientific facts
  • Test preparation, homework, and other areas that require parental involvement
The Educated Child also examines timely issues such as school choice, sex education, character education, and the phonics/whole language debate. Perhaps most important, it encourages parents to become advocates for their children by learning what to look for in a good school, how to talk to educators, and how, when necessary, to push for needed changes. For parents concerned about their children's current education and future lives, it is the ultimate handbook.
