Education Instigator Diane Ravitch To Speak At WFPL News

Since working with the U.S. Department of Education, historian Diane Ravitch has recanted her support for many of the country’s education reforms, such as standardized testing and charter schools.

Ravitch is a leading national voice on education issues, and next week she’ll will join WFPL and an audience in an exclusive interview to discuss the current and future state of public education.

She’ll also be in Louisville to accept the University of Louisville’s 2014 Grawemeyer Award for education, which she won for her book, “The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education.”

(Here’s my conversation with Ravitch from last fall.)

You can be part of our conversation with Ravitch at our downtown studios at 619 South Fourth St. It’s first come, first serve. We’ll be taking questions from the audience.

The event is free, but seating is limited and there are no RSVPs.

When: April 16, 9 am.

Where: 619 South Fourth Street (next to The Palace Theater)
