Diane Ravitch has been called a hero in her dedication to preserving public school education. On this episode, she talks with Mitchell about the “Disrupters,” who are funding privatization and believe schools should be run like businesses. And the “Resisters,” a powerful group of volunteer parents, teachers, students, bloggers and leaders who are fighting back to successfully keep alive their public schools. Are school voucher programs a viable solution? Ravitch shares her thoughts on this and more. Recorded at Books & Books in Coral Gables, Florida.
