Review Of
The Closing of the American Heart
What's Really Wrong with America's Schools
by Ronald H. Nash Published by Probe Books, 1990

Unlike most of the other books, this one is written from a religious perspective. Dr. Nash believes that the collapse of moral and religious standards over the past 25 years has contributed to the collapse of the nation's educational standards. He charges that moral illiteracy is reflected and taught in academia through relativism, positivism, and humanism. He says that the refusal to recognize the necessity of ethical absolutes and moral values has cut our culture loose from its moorings. — Phyllis Schlafly
