An essay by the Minister of State for Schools is included in a collection published by Policy Exchange.

ED Hirsch is the leading exponent of the importance of a knowledge-based curriculum, and has been an important influence on the government’s reform of qualifications and the curriculum.

A short collection of essays, published to coincide with the lecture, includes a contribution from Nick Gibb entitled ‘How ED Hirsch Came to Shape UK Government Policy’. Read the essay on the Policy Exchange website.
