Reign of Error… Available Now!

roeToday Diane Ravitch’s new book Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America’s Public Schools becomes available to the general public.  Ravitch uses the book to explore the various “reform” issues that public schools in America have been forced to deal with.  She uses data to explain the destructive nature of such reforms and then poses real solutions to the problems with our schools.

Below is a list of some of the many reviews available…

Last week PJSTA President Beth Dimino and I had the opportunity to attend the first stop on Ravitch’s book tour in Manhattan.  Ed Notes Online’s Norm Scott recorded the session.

In the coming days the PJSTA will be announcing the book group that we will be hosting to discuss Ravitch’s book.  Anyone is welcome to attend: Teachers, administrators, parents, high school students, or people from outside our community.  Flyers will be distributed with information.  Additionally a blog post with details will be forthcoming.
