A petition to urge Oprah Winfrey to invite Diane Ravitch onto her show.

Letter to
Ms. Oprah Winfrey (via Lisa Halliday)
We, the undersigned, were very disappointed with the recent Oprah show featuring Michelle Rhee and Bill Gates. We urge you to invite Prof. Diane Ravitch as a guest on your show.

Diane is an expert in the history of public education, the author of the bestseller, "The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Undermine Education," and is extremely incisive about the problems with the current rage for high stakes testing and privatization of our public schools.

There is much more to the story than "Waiting for Superman" reveals, and it's important that all sides be heard.
