Public Education Reform

A heads up to all those interested in education and the public education reform movement currently underway. A few years ago, education historian Diane Ravitch published a book titled The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education, which she discussed at great length in a highly enlightening interview by economist Russ Roberts on the podcast, Econ Talk. Hear that here. Now she has a new book out titled Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America’s Public Schools. Ravitch’s conclusions are summed up in her titles, but Politico has a neat little piece on American public education which quotes extensively from Ravitch here.
