Prof. Ravitch,

I am a community college English professor and a former public high school teacher, and want to thank you for latest book, which is a life raft amidst the recession of good will towards educators.

I have been writing on education for a few years, and your book gave me renewed vigor β€” and confidence β€” in fighting publicly for the institution I have proudly devoted my life to.

Please find, below, an essay I published which is in part inspired by your scholarship and advocacy: ”To Fix Education: Fire Human Teachers, Hire Holograms.”

Thanks much for your time.
