The Myth of Charter Schools

Madradprof is catching up on back issues of The New York Review of Books and came across this gem by Diane Ravitch. It's a review of the film Waiting for Superman. She does a nice job of trashing the argument that teachers are to blame for the failure of the nation's public school system. She also demonstrates quite convincingly that privatizing education has not (and will not) produce the positive results that its advocates claim.
