Reign of Error
Diane Ravitch talked about her book, Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America’s Public Schools, in which she argues that the education crisis in the U.S. stems from an effort to destroy our public education system by the private sector and Wall Street. She said that public school test scores and graduation rates are the highest they’ve ever been, but federal programs like No Child Left Behind and Race to the Top wrongfully give the impression that our teachers and students are underperforming. Ms. Ravitch spoke at the Free Library of Philadelphia. close
