"A child's learning is the function more of the characteristics of his classmates than those of the teacher." James Coleman, 1972
. . .a pupil attitude factor, which appears to have a stronger relationship to achievement than do all the “school” factors together, is the extent to which an individual feels that he has some control over his own destiny. James Coleman, 1966

Sandy Kress's Place at the Feeding Trough
Thanks to Judy Rabin for finding this piece in the archives of The Texas Observer. It reports on more of the homegrown corruption at the foundation for the psychometric-technological complex that now threatens to swallow up public education. Will miracles from Texas ever cease? More importantly, will the mainstream corporate media ever report on the profiteering and outright thievery underlying the crimes against humanity that are now being committed in the name of educational reform?
