My new book will be officially published on September 17.
It is titled Reign of Error: The Hoax of the
Privatization Movement and the Danger to America’s Public
. The publisher is Alfred A. Knopf, the nation’s
most distinguished publishing house. It will dispel many of the
myths and half-truths that have been repeated again and again in
recent years in an effort to discredit public education.

I will travel and lecture across the country. I won’t travel as much as I
would like to, as I must preserve my health and energy. I will
donate most of my speaking fees to the Network for Public

will add more details later, but this is a heads-up about where I
