Education reform superstars face off

Part of NBC’s second annual Education Nation summit featured a debate between two darlings of the education reform movement. Geoffrey Canada and Diane Ravitch stand in opposite corners where charter schools are concerned. The former adopted them as a central element in his movement to improve cradle-to-college outcomes for Harlem youth, while the latter labeled the film Waiting for Superman (which heaps praise on Canada’s Harlem Children’s Zone) “propagandistic” for going too far in its praise for the impact of charter schools.
