Video: Diane Ravitch at PS 15 in Red Hook, December 11, 2013

Here is the release of the video shot by Darren Marelli of this wonderful event.

A Conversation with Dr. Diane Ravitch at Red Hook's PS 15, December 11, 2013 with an introduction by Carmen Farina.
The PS 15 community was so thankful for Diane Ravitch having taken the time to speak and it highlights her deep commitment to neighborhood schools. While she has recently come under criticism for not offering solutions, she not only offers a plethora of solutions in her book, but also visits communities across the country, and like she did at PS 15, praises what we all know are the solutions for our schools: collaboration, parent empowerment, rich programming and curriculum, and educators who work, despite obstacles, to create schools that are centers of community. And also with much appreciation to Carmen Farina for her participation and chairing "Friends of PS 15 Committee for the last three years and for her participation in this event.
