The American Association of School Administrators has published the text of a speech (and the video) Diane Ravitch gave at their conference last month, and I don’t think you’re going to read or hear a better commentary on education anywhere.

You can read the text of her speech here.

Here are links to the video of her speech, dividing into three parts:

Part One

Part Two

Part Three

Thanks to the great organization, Learning First, for the tip.
