Ravitch's speech to the NEA

Diane Ravitch's speech to the 2010 NEA Representative Assembly in New Orleans drew an enthusiastic response from the 10,000 teachers at the meeting.
Race to the Top encourages states to increase the number of privately managed charters, to pass laws to evaluate teachers by test scores, to promote merit pay, and to agree to close or privatize schools with low scores or to fire all or part of their staff. All of this is wrong.
