Original tape date: June 1, 2010.
Joining me in the first of a two part conversation on the death and life of the American school system is Diane Ravitch, Research Professor of Education at New York University, historian of education, and blogger. Her most recent book, “The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education,” looks at public school reform and questions the direction in which it is going.
