Dorothy Rich passed away on Sunday. Valerie Strauss does a nice job of capturing her interesting and well-lived life in today’s WaPo. My wife and I were fortunate enough to know her professionally as well as socially. Dorothy was an absolutely tireless advocate for better education, in particular parent-school linkages, and also a wonderful person with a mischievous appreciation for life. Her footprint can be seen through her work and books and in federal policy but more importantly in lives she touched for the better.
