Last week we told you about the release of Diane Ravitch’s new book Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America’s Public Schools. Today we would like to announce the details of a book club that the PJSTA will be hosting to discuss the contents of the book. Here are the details…
When will the book club be? Every Wednesday evening. We will begin on October 9th. Our last meeting will be on November 20th, the week before Thanksgiving. The book club meetings will begin at 7:00 pm and run approximately an hour to an hour and a half.
Where will the meetings be held? The meetings will be held in the Comsewogue High School Auditorium.
Who can attend? Anyone! PJSTA members, administrators, parents, high school students, people from other communities… absolutely anyone with an interest in quality public education! Feel free to distribute this information far and wide!
Do I need to read the entire book before the first meeting? No you do not. We will discuss a few chapters each week as the content of the book is extensive. Typically you can expect each week’s meeting to cover 50 pages or so.
Where can I purchase the book? Amazon currently has it for under $17. Their Kindle version is available for even less. You can buy the book through all normal outlets. It’s possible that public libraries have it as well.
If you wish to join our book club please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can get a handle on how many people to expect. We are looking forward to some great discussions!
