Ravitch To Gates: Sex Up The Textbooks

In today's Seattle Times, Diane Ravitch takes things to the next level with an open letter to Bill Gates (How Bill Gates could really boost competitiveness).

Anyway, her advice is to dump the small schools thing and focus on curriculum materials and applications to create "amazing programs to teach mathematics, science, languages, history, literature and the arts." OK, why not?

Now for the snarky part: I like to think ravitch was copying my career ending open letter to Tom Van der Ark (Dear Tom: What Is Going On at the Gates Foundation?), but probably not. I was also quite distracted by Ravitch mentioning that she saw gates at Davos. Very impressive, Diane.
