Knowledge, Learning, Community
Series of articles making the case for a liberal education. Chester Finn and Diane Ravitch write, "Liberal learning is critical to young people because it prepares them for 'public life' - not just politics and government,but the civic life in which we should all partake." The volume of articles "develops the rationale for liberal education in the primary and secondary grades, explores what policymakers and educators at all levels can to do sustain liberal learning, and sketches an unlovely future if we fail."
