Education historian, author, Diane Ravitch at Stanford, Monday, 9/30
Original post made by David Cohen, Midtown, on Sep 25, 2013
From the Stanford web page for the event:
In "Reign of Error," Ravitch argues against privatization and for public education, and in a chapter-by-chapter breakdown, puts forth a plan for what can be done to preserve and improve public education. In her lecture, she will discuss the topics she addresses in her book, including the strengths of U.S. education, how policy makers are failing to address the root causes of educational failure, and how to effectively address the challenges.
A moderated discussion will follow. The discussion features Ravitch; Eric Hanushek, the Paul and Jean Hanna Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University; Linda Darling-Hammond, the Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education at Stanford and founding director of SCOPE; and Channa Mae Cook, former principal and teacher and current Stanford doctoral student. Peter Schrag, former editorial page editor and columnist for the Sacramento Bee, will moderate.
