YES! Reaching the Public with “The Myth of Our Failing Schools”

Diane Ravitch's blog

YES! Magazine devotes a special issue to public education and its findings  will not surprise readers of this blog.

The lead article by executive editor Dean Paton is “The Myth Behind Public School Failure,” demonstrating that our public schools are NOT failing. Here is the line that follows the title:

“In the rush to privatize the country’s schools, corporations and politicians have decimated school budgets, replaced teaching with standardized testing, and placed the blame on teachers and students.”

There is also a powerful infographic titled “Why Corporations Want Our Public Schools.”

The answer will not surprise you.

The important point about YES! is that the message about the theft of our public schools is reaching a larger public.

This is good news.
