From CNYTeacher: Diane Ravitch in Syracuse April 1st.
The grande dame of public education advocates is coming to Syracuse on April 1st, 2014, for the Syracuse University Lecture Series. Spread the word among your education colleagues and concerned parents. The failed policies of NY State Education Commissioner John King and the Board of Regents are ruining our children’s educational opportunity right before our eyes. This may be the most important debate of the decade.
The event is general admission, no tickets are needed, so plan to get there early. There has been an overwhelming response from the Albany and Rochester area as well. It would be great to have a Westhill contingent at the lecture, email Greg McCrea if you’re interested in attending.
