A New Jersey Mom: Another Hero of Public Education

Readers of Blue Jersey are well aware of where we stand on public education. What you may know less is how many amazing parents are working the front lines of protecting public education against destructive privatization and the gimmicks and schemes poorly devised by profiteers out to make a buck off NJ kids. But the highly-respected Diane Ravitch, historian of education, policy analyst and Assistant Secretary of Education under George H. W. Bush, hasn't missed all the great work going on in New Jersey.
