Diane Ravitch Launched in Pittsburgh, Yinzer-Style in Front of A Thousand People

How awesome is this? Ed Deformers must be quaking.


We here in Pittsburgh were honored to launch Diane's national book tour Monday night with a crowd of 1,000 people. We actually had a sneak preview, since as you know, the book did not officially get released until yesterday. Rather than a formal review, I've written the following piece describing the event, which was also a giant education justice rally, and how our local movement reflects Diane's message. I thought you might especially enjoy seeing the photos.

I look forward to learning how things went in Philly last night … and am sending Diane lots of positive energy to keep her going on this national tour, which is bound to be absolutely exhausting. Kudos to all of you for propping her up with your words and these important reviews. She told me Monday that we bloggers are critical engines in this national public education movement of ours is … that's powerful. And what responsibility!

Thank you for everything you do,
