"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

Those within driving distance will want to check out this piece of theatre:
Through the combined styles of Hip-Hop Theater and Musical Theater, New To Me focuses on a group of young people who are given the chance to create their own TV news program. Once they decide to report on disparities in the No Child Left Behind Act, the youth face a governing group of adults who would like to “white wash” what is broadcast over the airwaves.
