Yesterday Diane Ravitch noted that her blog, Diane Ravitch's Blog: A Site to Discuss Better Education For All had passed 23 million page views.  She is one of my "go-to" blogs on education under reform, real and faux. Her relentless, engaging and informed posting is not to be missed.

The entry noting this event describes Dr. Ravitch's aims and interests as well as concerns. She has a  definition of the purpose of an education, K-12.  I like it and am happy to pass it on for consideration and comment. Dr. Ravitch wrote: "The goal of education is to develop young people into adults of good character who can think for themselves, make wise choices, and contribute to the betterment of society."
