Citizens for Public Schools is presenting a talk by Diane Ravitch Oct. 24 (Thursday) at Memorial Church in Harvard Yard.
She will speak about her new book, Reign of Error. Ravitch is an education historian and former Assistant Secretary of Education under the first Pres. Bush. She was an early supporter of high-stakes standardized testing and charter schools, but when she saw the results, she changed her mind and has become a leading opponent of corporate “reform” in education.
The Mass. Assn. of School Committees and the Mass. Assn. of School Superintendents are both co-sponsors. Has resistance to corporate education policies gone mainstream?
When: Thursday, October 24, 2013, 7:30 p.m.
Where: Memorial Church, Harvard Yard, Cambridge
Ticket Donations: $12 (To register online, click here.)
