Tulsa, Oklahoma – Since it's "back to school" time once again, we at StudioTulsa are offering a series of outstanding education-related programs from our archives. We're calling it Education Week --- five shows from the recent past in which we hear from leading educators and education experts. On today's program, the first in this week-long series, we hear from the noted author, education advocate, NYU professor, and former Assistant Secretary of Education Diane Ravitch. She tells us about her new book, "The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice are Undermining Education."
