"Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and
the Danger to America's Public Schools"
Come to the CPS 2013 Mary Ann Hardenbergh Lecture with Diane Ravitch, author of The Death and Life of the Great American School System and one of America's most insightful authorities on the history and condition of public education in the United States.
We're excited to host Diane on October 24, 2013, at Memorial Church in Harvard Yard, Cambridge. Diane will speak about her new book, Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America's Public Schools.
In this book, Diane "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...Reign of Error begins where The Death and Life of the Great American School System left off, providing a deeper argument against privatization and for public education, and in a chapter-by-chapter breakdown, putting forth a plan for what can be done to preserve and improve it. She makes clear what is right about U.S. education, how policy makers are failing to address the root causes of educational failure, and how we can fix it" (Amazon).
