Diane Ravitch Visiting California

September 27, 2013

 Video clip from Diane Ravitch’s talk in Sacramento, 1/20/12.

For readers in California, there are several upcoming opportunities to hear Diane Ravitch at public events.

Friday, 9/27 – Sacramento

Saturday, 9/28 – Berkeley

Monday, 9/30 – Stanford

Tuesday, 10/1 – Los Angeles

Wednesday, 10/2 – Northridge

Ravitch’s new book, Reign of Error, continues to garner attention. Jonathan Kozol’s NY Times review concludes, “Those… who have grown increasingly alarmed at seeing public education bartered off piece by piece, and seeing schools and teachers thrown into a state of siege, will be grateful for this cri de coeur — a fearless book, a manifesto and a call to battle.” Ravitch was interviewed on NPR this morning as well. I posted my review a couple weeks ago.

I’ll be introducing Diane Ravitch at the Stanford event, and look forward to hearing her speak again. I’ll post some thoughts here afterwards and encourage others to share their impressions, agree or disagree.
