Diane Ravitch Responds

Education historian/activist Diane Ravitch is taking the New York Post, claiming the paper doesn’t appreciate parents criticism of public schools. Which sort of mirrors parent’s complaints about Joel Klein.

In an item she posted at 6 a.m., Ravitch wrote:

Did the editorial writers of the New York Post read the latest Qunnipiac poll? Do they know that 58% of the voters in New York City want an end to mayoral control and a return to an independent Board of Education?

Since the New York Post did not bother to report the poll to their readers, perhaps they don’t know about it. And that’s why their editorial writers think that anyone who questions the latest reorganization of the reorganization is a shill from New Jersey, not a real public school parent.
