NOTES

Read by William J. Bennett

Just as William J. Bennett's The Book of Virtues has helped millions of Americans teach young people about character, The Educated Child delivers what you need to take control. With co-authors Chester Finn and John Cribb, former Secretary of Education Bennett provides the indispensable guide. The Educated Child champions a clear "back-to-basics" curriculum that will resonate with parents and teachers tired of fads and jargon. The Educated Child places parents squarely at the center of their young one's academic career and takes a no-nonsense view of their responsibilities. It empowers mothers and fathers, enabling them to reclaim what has been appropriated by "experts" and the education establishment. No longer will you feel powerless before the education "system." Advocates of trendy approaches, touchy-feely esteem-enhancement schemes, and "values-free" education will disagree. Those who believe that today's low education standards are good enough, or that young Americans cannot be expected to learn as much as children in other lands, will take issue. But if you seek high standards and solid, time-tested content for the child you care most about, if you want the unvarnished truth about what parents and schools must do, The Educated Child is the one audiobook you need to ensure that your little girl or boy receives a truly good education
