Prominent Charter School Opponent Ravitch Inspired by WV Public School Workers

Charleston Gazette-Mail – Education professor and historian Diane Ravitch, a prominent critic of charter schools and giving public money to private schools, said she hadn’t planned to write another education book. Read article.

“I realized I had gotten old, I was tired of traveling,” Ravitch, 81, told public school workers and others at the University of Charleston Saturday.

“I was going to write my memoirs and I was about a third of the way through in February of 2018 — and then you guys went out on strike,” she said.

Saturday marked the second anniversary of the first statewide public school workers strike in West Virginia history, which stopped the annual cuts to school and state employee health insurance coverage and produced a pay raise for school workers and state workers.
