On October 19, the distinguished scholar Linda Darling-Hammond of Stanford University will speak at Wellesley College in the Annual Diane Silvers Ravitch Class of ’60 Lecture on Education and the Common Good.

The lecture is free and open to all. It begins at 7:30 pm in Alumnae Hall Auditorium.

Please mark the date on your calendar.

The first speaker in the series in 2015 was me.

Last year’s speaker was Pasi Sahlberg of Finland.

Linda D-H is the speaker for 2017.

The series will feature a leading educator and/or scholar every year. The thread that binds them all is concern for “the common good,” the public welfare of America’s children.

Please join us for what promises to be a great, thought-provocative, informative evening!
