Spoke in this class of undergrads at Kenyon College, Monday evening. They are reading Jonathan Kozol's "Savage Inequalities". After class, students and their great prof, Peter Rutkoff, posed for this group pic to send to Jonathan as a birthday greeting.

Rag Radio: Fighting for Public Education with Julian Vasquez Heilig & Mike Klonsky (February 28, 2014)
Julian Vasquez Heilig and Mike Klonsky join Thorne Dreyer in discussing our endangered public education system, the nature and genesis of the flawed "educational reform" movement, and ideas about how public schools can be improved and can be saved from privatization.
Vasquez Heilig hosted the Network for Public Education's first National Conference, held March 1- 2, 2014, on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. Mike Klonsky moderated a panel on "Movement Building" at the gathering of leading public education activists. The group was founded by noted author and educational policy analyst Diane Ravitch in 2013, and has become a prominent voice in the education reform debate.
