A conversation With Diane Ravitch At UA Sunday, December 14

Posted By on Thu, Dec 11, 2014 at 2:25 PM

Diane Ravitch, education historian, author, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education, co-founder of Network for Public Education, will be speaking at University of Arizona, College of Education—KIVA room, 1430 E. Second Street, Tucson (parking available for free at 2nd street parking garage), 2:30-4:00 p.m.

Join us for a thought-provoking conversation about the current state of K-12 education with Dr. Diane Ravitch.

A prolific writer, renowned researcher and one of the nation's leading public education advocates, Ravitch is the author of "Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Priatization Movement and the Danger to America's Public Schools," a New York Times best-seller. Jonathan Kozol describes the book as "a fearless book, a manifesto and a call to battle."

Last year Ravitch co-founded the Network for Public Education, a national organization to support public education as a cornerstone of our democracy, to elevate and defend the teaching profession and to protect children against the abuses of high stakes testing and data mining.
