Diane Ravitch to WNBC-TV: state tests a "Ponzi scheme"

Diane Ravitch, interviewed by WNYC-TV's Gabe Pressman, called dumbed down state tests a "Ponzi scheme."

Click to this MSNBC link for the full report on Pressman's reporting Ravitch's critical comments on state tests and charter schools.

She said that President Barack Obama's emphasis on state tests will undermine education, and Pressman adds Ravitch said that
the Obama administration wants states to create more charter schools but she insists the evidence to date doesn’t show they do any better than regular public schools.

And she warns that the creation of more charter schools could be "an invitation to corruption."
