There is a saying: "All things old are new again." In education, this is often the case.
It's not surprising that current research findings on how young people learn are congruent with similar studies from years past. For nearly three decades, noted educational theorist E.D. Hirsch has been writing about the essential nature of a content-rich curriculum and the need for cultural literacy. TASIS schools employ this curricular approach, because we believe that it is not simply the best way for students to acquire knowledge, it is also the best preparation for their futures. It seems that the research agrees.
