Friends of PS 15 Presents a Meet The Author and Book Talk Event at the PS 15 Community Library:
A Conversation about the Future of Public Education with Education Historian, and Author, Dr. Diane Ravitch
Date: Wednesday, December 11, 2013
Time: Library Opens at 5:00 PM, Event ends at 7:00 PM
Location: PS 15, The Patrick F. Daly School
71 Sullivan Street
Red Hook, Brooklyn
To RSVP or for more information email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bring your study groups, your book clubs, your questions and your comments for an intimate book talk with Dr. Diane Ravitch. We will discuss her new book Reign of Error, which offers a comprehensive look at today’s American school system and argues against those who claim it is broken and beyond repair. She offers an impassioned, but reasoned call, to stop the privatization movement that is draining students and funding from our public schools.
Dr. Diane Ravitch is Research Professor of Education at New York University and the author of several books including her new book, Reign of Error and The Life and Death of the American Public School System. From 1991-1993 she served as Assistant Secretary of Education. She blogs at dianeravitch.net.

Quick, simple and extremely effective, DEAR is a great way to get both staff and students reading! A DEAR session consists of getting the whole school to stop, drop what they are doing and to read, for pleasure, for 15 minutes.
Each day at 12:35, it’s DEAR Time. A song is played over the loud speaker which signals the P.S. 32 Community to get ready to read!
