The Educated Child defines what a good education is, breaking down subjects into specific books, concepts and repeatable skills.

Questions to ask teachers, what to look for in your child's classroom, warning signs of bad teachers, how to opt-out (or try to change!) controversial classes and additional hints and standards about public/private schools are included for you to find the best education for your child. 664 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

Tony Lang The Cincinnati Enquirer A common sense-loaded gem that defines a good education and tells parents how to make sure their children get one.
Publishers Weekly An impassioned and straight-shooting reference that will inspire both parents and educators.

    This book is now 9 years old and the information is somewhat helpful, but there are much more helpful books available. It would not be useful for a homeschooling parent and I disagreed with many of the assertions that Bennet makes about various topics. One example is what he says about institutional daycare and preschool. There are many regulations on home daycares--they are not unregulated as he asserts. That is only one example, but there were many others.I would recommend that you keep looking for a book that would help you more and be more accurate.
