‘Future of Public Education’ webcast with Diane Ravitch is Tuesday

The Wisconsin Academy will host a live-streamed webcast of a discussion with education historian and policy analyst Diane Ravitch at 7 p.m. Tuesday (March 8) on its website. Ravitch, a Brookings Institution senior fellow billed as America’s “soberest, most history-minded education expert” by the Wall Street Journal, will offer analysis of the current state of American education—what’s broken and what are the best ways to fix it—and discuss the current collective bargaining standoff in Wisconsin at a free, public event in Madison at the Memorial Union. Organized by the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters.
