What I Said in Texas

Diane Ravitch's blog

On Monday, I was in Commerce, Texas, to speak at Texas A&M’s campus there. I met some wonderful Texans and was treated royally by President Ray Keck and Vice President Noah Nelson.

I had a Q&A with the education faculty, then had an interview with the local NPR station, then lectured to the campus community.

The big issue in Texas right now is that Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing for vouchers. I explained that vouchers have consistently failed and that they will draw resources from the public schools that most children attend, which are already underfunded.

This link has the short interview and a summary of my talk.
