Read full description of the books:



An influential historican/educator who played a major role in the development of education policy from the late 80s to the present, Ravitch is very good when she's writing about the arguments the ebbs and flows in the arguments concerning structure vs. freedom in American education. I benefited from her summaries of which reports and books influenced the ways schools operated in the wake of Sputnik, the upheavals of the 60s and the retrenchments of the 70s. At times I grew impatient with the way her preferences (which she's rethought over the years, something I value) shape her analysis. She's certainly right to point out the contradictions of the student movements on college campuses during the Vietnam and Black Power eras, but she pays almost no attention to the larger canvass. It's not possible to understand the excesses of the movements at Berkeley, Columbia, Cornell, etc., without clearly recognizing the near-absolute refusal of the LBJ and Nixon administrations to respond to legitimate--which Ravitch would call "rational"--protest. In general, she's much better on elementary and middle schools than high schools and, especially, colleges and universities. I'm glad I read the book; it thickened my knowledge of the educational disputes of the sixties, but readers coming to Ravitch for the first time, especially those interested in contemporary education, should very definitely start with The Death and Life of the Great American School.
