Why we will beat the reformers, by Diane Ravitch

speech marksWe are many and they are few.

But the other part of it is everything that they’re doing now – “they” being this corporate reform movement — is failing… Evaluating teachers by test scores doesn’t work. Charter schools are not better than public schools… Sure you can get more gains if you take out the low-performing kids, but who’s gonna educate the low-performing kids?

Aren’t they human beings? Aren’t they American citizens? Don’t they deserve an education?…

Why destroy public education so that a handful of people can boast they have a charter school in addition to their yacht?speech marks end
