Diane Ravitch lecture

Former Bush Administration education official Diane Ravitch presented a lecture Oct. 15 as part of this year's Honors Colloquium, and her comments drew a large audience and attention from the media.  The Providence Journal and Rhode Island Public Radio announced her appearance in the days before her lecture, and both the Journal and radio station followed up with stories about her presentation.  Ravitch then wrote an op-ed for the Huffington Post about her campus appearance.
