High-Profile Critic Of Education Reform Comes To N.H.
Diane Ravitch, one of the nation's loudest voices against efforts by recent presidents to reform American education, says teachers should be able to make changes to the new Common Core State Standards that New Hampshire schools are implementing now.
In her career Ravitch has gone from being an Assistant US Secretary of Education, supervising the country’s largest standardized test, to one of the nation’s most out-spoken opponents of such tests. She addressed a crowd at Dartmouth College Wednesday as part of a book tour promoting her latest book Reign of Error and before the talk NHPR's Education reporter, Sam Evans-Brown, caught up with her.
