AUTHOR

Ravitch, Diane

SUMMARY

"Ms. Ravitch...writes with enormous authority and common sense. She shows how priggish, censorious and downright absurd 'the language police' can be, and she does so with furious logic. Though many of the broader points she makes here have been touched on by other writers...she uses her own knowledge of the education system and a careful reading of current educational material to show just how institutionalized censorship is becoming.... At the end of this book Ms. Ravitch makes three suggestions for stopping censorship within the educational system....A fourth suggestion might be added to that list: reading THE LANGUAGE POLICE as an introduction to the problem, a book that is every bit as alarming as it is illuminating."Ravitch, Diane is the author of 'Language Police How Pressure Groups Restrict What Students Learn', published 2004 under ISBN 9781400030644 and ISBN 1400030641.
