Defending public education

I’ve joined with some great education friends to encourage a broad grassroots defense of public education.  The Network for Public Education hopes to build what fellow co-founder and NPE president Diane Ravitch describes as “a huge social network of parents, students, teachers, administrators, school board members, and all others who believe in public education and sane educational policy that focuses on a full and rich education for all children.”

Fulfilling the uniquely American promise of public education has been an unfulfilled dream for too many of our children for too long. It’s time for those of us who understand the value of public education to stand up, loud.
