  • L@L: David Hicks

    Join Leigh!@Lunch! this week as Matt Bianco hosts this week's show to interview author David Hicks about his book, Norms & Nobility: A Treatise on Education. "First published in 1981 when it won the American Library Association's Outstanding Book Award, Norms & Nobility has become a classic text in the education reform movement. Beginning with the premise that any vital system of education must maintain the link between thought and action, knowing and doing, David Hicks offers a compelling argument on behalf of the classical tradition and its ongoing relevance to contemporary pedagogy. The large and loyal following that htis argument has attracted among administrators and teachers over the years bears witness to the practical wisdom of Hick'sideas." (back of Norms and Nobility)
