Reign of Error - Diane Ravitch


In Reign of Error, Diane Ravitch launches a stout defense of the public school system and a sharp attack on the so-called reformers out to wreck them. Receive a copy of this book, as featured on Your Call, as our thanks for a donation of $120.

Ravitch, a noted education authority, argues that the crisis in American education is not a crisis of academic achievement but a concerted effort to destroy public schools in this country.

She makes clear that, contrary to the claims being made, public school test scores and graduation rates are the highest they’ve ever been, and dropout rates are at their lowest point. She’s as dismissive of George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind as of Barack Obama’s Race to the Top.

This book is for policymakers, parents and anyone concerned about the dismantling of one of our democracy’s great institutions.
