Event Details

 

Former US Assistant Secretary of Education, Dr. Diane Ravitch will speak on her new book


"Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America's Public Schools"


Education historian, former Assistant Secretary of Education, and author of the bestselling book, The Death and Life of the Great American School System, Diane Ravitch now repudiates positions that she once staunchly advocated.  Drawing on over forty years of research and experience, Ravitch is a critic of several current school reform ideas, including privatization, standardized testing, punitive accountability, and charter schools

Dr. Ravitch blogs at dianeravitch.net, a site which has had nearly 3.5 million page views in less than a year.

There will be a book signing following the lecture.
