No Child Left Behind….Really?

It is usually a strong woman that admits they  made a mistake.  Diane Ravitch educational pioneer was always known as a conservative champion of choice, testing, No Child Left Behind, and other programs designed to make schools more efficient.  Now Ravitch is saying “we were wrong” and has written a book about it.  The Death and Life of the Great American School System represents a radical change of heart from one of America’s best-known education experts.  If you are currently raising a school aged child or are intimately involved in the education system listen to this honest, open interview.  We all need to take action and take back our children’s education from the hands of politicians.  For more information go to:
