HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	EVENT: Honors Hosts Education Scholar Diane Ravitch:
The Honors Program is hosting renowned education scholar, Diane Ravitch, on Wednesday, January 22 at 7:00pm in the University Auditorium (next to Century Tower). 

Diane Ravitch is a research professor of education at New York University and a prolific writer, who has published more than 500 articles and reviews for scholarly and popular publications on the subject. Ravitch is internationally acclaimed for her expertise on past and present education.

Drawing on her over 40 years of research and experience, Ravitch has become the champion for public schools across the country. She offers critiques of today's most popular ideas for restructuring schools, including privatization, standardized testing, punitive accountability, and the multiplication of charter schools, and offers a clear prescription for improving American public schools.

Just last week Ravitch was listed as the second most influential university-based education scholar according to Education Week's RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings. The metrics recognize university-based scholars in the U.S. who are contributing most substantially to public debates about education.

The event is free and open to the public, although tickets are required. The Honors Office will have a limited supply, available on a first-come, first-served basis in 343 Infirmary starting today. Tickets may also be available the evening of the event on a space-available basis. 

This event is co-sponsored by the Bob Graham Center for Public Service and the UF College of Education. Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/555406151209978/
