NEW AND UPDATED: An evening with Diane Ravitch

Plan to attend An Evening with Diane Ravitch

Moderated by Eli Stokols, Fox 31 News

Event location is changed and now free to the public

In order to open this great opportunity up to more Colorado residents with a passion for education, we are happy to  announce Diane Ravitch will now speak at a larger venue. Augustana Lutheran Church is the new location (see address). To further encourage community participation, we are opening this event to the public free of charge. However, attendees are still encouraged to register so we know how many are coming. Walk‐ins will be welcome the night of the event, if there is space. While the church can seat many more people than the previous venue, space is still limited.

You will not want to miss the chance to hear the author of “The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice are Undermining Education

In her latest book, distinguished education scholar and former proponent of the federal No Child Left Behind Act, Diane Ravitch raises concerns over testing mania and school choice. In the process, she is reframing the national debate
over the best ways to improve our nation’s public schools.
