Weekend Fun: Happy Birthday Diane Ravitch!

2nd Grade in Houston

I spent the last few days at an advisory board meeting for the Network for Public Education in New York City. If you haven’t already, join the movement. Look for an invite to an NPE conference in Austin Texas in 2014.

Also, Happy Birthday to @DianeRavitch!! I also want to thank Diane for her encouragement this past week to start my first book. I have already finished half of the first chapter. Can you spot her above in the Montrose Elementary second grade photo? There will be a small prize for the first person to guess correctly which student is Diane Ravitch. One guess per person. :)

    Have a Happy and Healthy Birthday to you and may you have many many more

    You are very special in so many ways,
    I truly hope you realize how you brighten up our days…
    Your blogs are chock full of news;
    Your compassion/dedication to public ed is seen in your views,
    That perhaps, one day there’ll be no more “Michelle Rhees!”

    People are having a reading comprehension problem: they keep guessing wrong after someone already gave the right answer.

    Bottom row, far left, plaid jumper and white collar is Diane. Yes?
    Or has the correct answer already been given?
