Have you listened to Diane Ravitch yet?!!
A reformed No Child Left Behind education historian who worked for George H. Bush, she is now a brilliant voice for sanity in public education. In all the distractions about charter schools, choice, anecdotal stories about private schools with wonderful language education, she keeps her eye on the prize: the public. We need an outstanding PUBLIC education system which helps bring up our WHOLE public. High stakes testing is destroying public education. Period.
