Advocates Launch Group Aimed To Monitor Education Reform

Diane Ravitch, an education historian and vocal critic of recent education policy trends, has launched a new advocacy group that will endorse political candidates committed to safeguarding schools from “privatization,” Education Week reported.

The group had raised $10,000 by Thursday afternoon.
