Education news: Diane Ravitch on "Fresh Air"


Just as we get ready for testing week, Diane Ravitch is on Fresh Air being interviewed about …testing!!  She was wonderful – full of insight and knowledge.  I wish she had Arne Duncan’s job!

Diane Ravitch is a historian of education and the former United States assistant secretary of education. She currently teaches at New York University.

Here’s the interview:
