Ravitch and New Book Today at Judson Church

I'll be there taping and interviewing and some MOREistas will be there to distribute the hot off the press new newsletter, MORE Stuff in Your Mailbox. If there is one thing to fault Diane on in her book (and I haven't finished all of it) is her allowing the unions off the hook for their complicity in ed deform. I do get there are long-time relationships she has. But there were also long-time relationships with ed deformers that have been broken. There are ways to tweak them and I believe Ravitch has at times begun to put her toe in that water though I can't be specific. I hope someone asks her about the UFT and Thompson at this point in the mayoral race.

Oh, you have to have a ticket.
