Check out this post from her very important blog:
Diane has come a long way in her thinking about schools and educational reform and her original version of the The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education (2010) ISBN 978-0-465-01491-0 was one of the hardest books I’ve ever read. But once I had it well digest I started passing her word out to the rest of the educators I knew to get them fired up, but many didn’t want to believe it and shut down. But at this point everyone’s eyes are open and yes there is a growing revolution to the realities of crushing reforms.
Ravitch was at first a wild tweeter, but now shes’s moved her passion and advocacy to her blog, http://dianeravitch.net.
I follow it and the updates fill my email box. Bring them on lady! Keep my eyes opened even if I’d prefer a bit of fantasy more often.
Yes, she’s my hero!
