The public face of progressive education these days is author and education historian Diane Ravitch ("The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education," "Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to Americas Public Schools"). She's one of the founders of the Network for Public Education (NPE) which has brought together educators, parents and community members around the country, using lots of hard work and very little money to get its message out. The NPE is at the forefront of the pro-public schools, anti-privatization/corporatization/"education reform" push in the country. Tucson's own Robin Hiller is NPE's Executive Director.

Saturday, NPE's first "PUBLIC Education Nation" event will be webcast live at starting at 9am Arizona time.
