Diane Ravitch: Defending Public Education
If you are a teacher, or concerned about public education because your kids attend public schools, and if you watch anything today – watch this video of Diane Ravitch defending public education at this year’s American Federation of Teachers conference.
Diane’s points are strong, loud, well-thought-out and numerous. She points out that American teachers are under serious attack by privatization forces and this trend will not end unless teachers stay strong. There are so many excellent points in this speech! I recommend viewing it in its entirety, and if you have the capability please pass this around to your friends.
