There Are a Few Things Missing From the NYT Review of Diane Ravitch’s New Book

Education historian turned anti-reform flamethrower Diane Ravitch is just out with a new book, Slaying Goliath, and the review by Annie Murphy Paul in the New York Times was hardly glowing. Some have called it scathing.

Ned Stanley of 50CAN appreciated the review, calling it “strong,” but took to Twitter to share that there was more he wished had been included. Lucky for us, he got specific.

Thank you Ned for adding a bit of additional seasoning to an already delicious take on Ravitch’s new book.
