The NYRB recently published this article by Andrew Delbanco. I've not read either of these two books so I'll avoid what Steiner detests and not post thoughts on someone else's thoughts based on their reading. Simploy to say that this article is an interesting read and I would like to read both of these works.
Would appreciate any comment back from anyone who has read these or any other works by these gentelman.
The Making of Americans: Democracy and Our Schools, by E.D. Hirsch Jr., and
Why School? Reclaiming Education for All of Us, by Mike Rose
