(Diane Ravitch continues to cover this dim ideologue, for which I thank her.)
Her message everywhere was the same: Public schools suck! Private schools are awesome!
In public schools, children sit in desks arranged in rows. In private schools, well, maybe the same but it doesn’t matter.
In public schools, children hate going to school. In private schools, they are enthusiastic and happy.
This woman is an ideologue. She knows nothing and learns nothing. Whatever she proposes is meant to damage public schools and communities.
Education is a learning profession, and she is not open to learning anything!
We will wait her out, fight her at every turn, and return to the task of improving and strengthening public schools for all children, a concept unknown to her.
