How to Educate a Citizen offers readers a look at the historical context of American public schooling while perpetuating an enduring argument over the best approaches to curriculum. Hirsch revisits his work from the past 30 years, calling on parents, teachers, and educational leaders to view American public schooling as an opportunity to teach patriotism rather than skills and content.
