A New Year’s Resolution List I Wish To Share

Dr. Diane Ravitch, a tireless defender of public school education, a diligent champion at exposing corporate education reform for the hoax that it is, and author of Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America’s Public Schools, has composed a New Year’s Wish List.

I am attaching it here in a link. (http://dianeravitch.net/2014/01/01/happy-new-year-to-all/) Here are a few highlights:

Let us continue to insist on a better education for all, not just more testing and more standardization.

Let us remember that the purpose of public education is not just to prepare for college and careers, but to prepare for citizenship in a democracy as responsible persons.

Let us continue to struggle for the day when public officials recognize that testing is a means to an end, not an end in itself.

A wonderful 2014 to you all.
