The Knowledge Matters Campaign is an advocacy initiative focused on the critical role of knowledge-building. It’s time to restore history, science, geography, art, music, and more to the education we give to all students, especially those least likely to gain such knowledge outside school. Greater comprehension, critical thinking, curiosity, and equality will be our reward. Educators need to devote more time to building vocabulary and knowledge in science, social studies, and the arts — starting in early childhood. Policymakers need to create incentives for districts and schools to make long-term investments in building academic knowledge. Parents need to demand a well-rounded education and read aloud, visit museums, and discuss current events with their children.
