    • 7. Criticism of Progressive Education Strongest critic is E. D. Hirsch Jr. According to Hirsch, “from kindergarten through high school, our public educational system is among the worst in the developed world. For over fifty years, American schools have operated on the assumption that challenging children academically is unnatural for them, that teachers do not need to know the subjects they teach, that the learning ‘process’ should be emphasized over the facts taught. All this is tragically wrong.”
