We've just learned that Diane Ravitch will receive the 2011 Daniel Patrick Moynihan Prize from the American Academy of Political and Social Science. To quote from the Academy's website: the prize was created to "recognize social scientists and other leaders in the public arena who champion the use of informed judgment to advance the public good." Diane is being honored for her work in urban education, both as a researcher and a public official. Congratulations, Diane!
Reminder: Bridging Differences returns Jan. 4, 2011.
