Diane Ravitch wants to know what makes schools work. A historian of American education at NYU who served in the administration of the first President Bush, she defies easy ideological labeling with a clear head and open mind that insists on seeing what the data really tells us about testing, choice, charter schools and other fashionable reforms. “I have always relied on Ravitch’s intellectual honesty when battles become intense,” says the political scientist Alan Wolfe. “Her voice is especially important now.”
