EDUCATE! ORGANIZE!! MOBILIZE!!!
These are the three pillars on which Ed Notes is founded – providing information on current ed issues, organizing activities around fighting for public education in NYC and beyond and exposing the motives behind the education deformers. We are part of a tiny band of resisters. Nothing will change unless YOU GET INVOLVED IN THE STRUGGLE!
Note her appearance tonight - Tuesday (Oct. 8),. (I'm hoping to be there to tape.)
Diane Ravitch, NYU professor and former U.S. Assistant Secretary of
Education, for a hard-hitting look at the perilous state of America's
public school system in her newest book, Reign of Error: The Hoax of the
Privatization Movement and the Danger to America's Public Schools.
Called a "whistleblower extraordinaire" by the Wall Street Journal,
Ravitch's many books include The Death and Life of the Great American
School System. In conversation with New Yorker writer David Denby.
And here are some notes from the tour.
“I’m very honored to have the opportunity to introduce Diane tonight, She’s somebody that I have admired for a very long time. She’s an amazing person. She’s America’s foremost historian in the areas of education policy, she’s a champion of public education, she’s a courageous speaker and she’s a truth-teller.” Matt Damon 10/2/13
