Ravitch "Reign of Error" Reviews - A running account

9/21  Update - More will be added as they come in or people notify me.

My review's been up for a couple of days on K12 News Network:

Open Letter to President Obama -- The One Book You Should Read on Public Education: Reign of Error, by Diane Ravitch http://bit.ly/18JzlOx

I added a widget at the bottom if you want to to put a link to your review on mine. The idea is that a reader reading my post would then see all of yours and be able to click over directly. (It's an old "mom blogger" trick to boost traffic to the blog carnival -- the link widget is similar to a slightly more organized comments section specifically devoted to highlighting related review posts.)
Here's the code if you want to add it to your post -- I'll jump over and add a link to mine from yours. Just let me know if you added the link widget to your post.

My review is also on MomsRising. Might be up on a couple different places in a bit.
