Education historian Diane Ravitch, who served in the first Bush administration, was once a leading proponent of charter schools, standardized testing and free market solutions for schools. Now, she has rejected virtually all of those reform strategies. She joins us in-studio to explain her changing views and to talk about her new book, “The Death and Life of the Great American School System.”

Diane Ravitch, author, historian of education at New York University and former assistant secretary of education in the George H.W. Bush administration
