Is Education on the Wrong Track?
March 18, 2010
From: Ben Wildavsky To: Diane Ravitch, Richard Rothstein, and Kevin Carey Subject: Ravitch misunderstands the roles of charter schools, teacher professionalism, and bipartisanship in education reform. Diane, I appreciate your spirited rebuttal to my essay. I’m not surprised to hear you repeat what you say in your book--that you have no objection to the market economy per se (although you somewhat undermine your case when you toss around silly phrases like “corporate suits”). It is the entry of market principles into public education that bothers you.
