Bring your study groups, your book clubs, your questions, and your comments for an intimate book talk with Dr. Diane Ravitch. We will discuss her new book, Reign of Error, which offers a comprehensive look at today’s American school system and argues against those who claim it is broken and beyond repair. She offers an impassioned but reasoned call to stop the privatization movement that is draining students and funding from our public schools.
Dr. Diane Ravitch is Research Professor of Education at New York University and the author of several books, including her new book, Reign of Error, and The Life and Death of the American Public School System. From 1991-1993 she served as Assistant Secretary of Education. She blogs at dianeravitch.net.
