Police Blotter - New York
Police personnel from the Critical Incident Unit broke into education historian Diane Ravitch's home after she failed to Tweet or blog for a full forty-five minutes yesterday.
"Our department received numerous 911 calls from concerned followers of Ravitch's Twitter and blog accounts, so we had to respond," explained Captain Mark Deral.
It turns out the outspoken critic of educational policies such as high-stakes testing was merely taking a nap. "She was very surprised to see us while we were mostly relieved." Deral said.
Through a spokesperson, Ravitch said she would try to be more vigilant in her communication.
