Applause for Teachers « Diane Ravitch's blog: Applause for Teachers by dianerav On Saturday afternoon, I went to a matinee of the Broadway show “Godspell” with family. It is a very engaging show with a wonderful young cast. I enjoyed their boundless energy. Most of them seemed to be just a few years out of high school or college, and so very talented and attractive. If any of you are in New York City this summer, go to the TKTS booth in Times Square and buy a ticket. Every seat in the house is a good one. The star of the show, by the way, is a graduate of the Los Angeles High Scho... more »

Seattle Schools Community Forum: The Reforms I'm For: The Reforms I'm For by Charlie Mas We spend a lot of time talking about the reforms promoted by Education Reform Advocacy Organizations which we oppose. I also spend a lot of time correcting them when they say that those who oppose them are fighting for the status quo. So folks might wonder what reforms I actually support. It's a fair question.
