Once a staunch supporter of educational reform efforts like the federal No Child Left Behind Act, Diane Ravitch had an enlightening moment about what really works in the classroom.

She chronicles those thoughts in her new book The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education.

COMMENTS:
In this piece, the moderator said that a high percentage of students were graduating high school at only an 8th grade level. This is the problem. Why are students allowed to graduate when they are not up to grade level? It degrades the system and gives credence to the idea that education is not valued.
