Diane Ravitch Revised?
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v43 n3 p311-320 Sep 2011
Long associated with conservative views on education, Diane Ravitch recently has won wide acclaim from educators and others who do not identify with conservatism. The publication of "The Death and Life of the Great American School System" has been central to her newfound popularity because it is an effective critique of the market-based reforms she previously championed and because it defends both public schools and their teachers. As attractive as these stances are to defenders of public education, Ravitch's book offers little evidence that she has backed away from an underlying conservatism that is complacent about inequalities inside and outside of public schools.
