"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

More on Voucher Slapdown

This one from the Times, which ends with this:
"This is an important victory for public education and church-state separation," said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which supported the challenge to the Florida program. "Now the state legislature can devote its attention to improving public education rather than subsidizing religious and other private schools. The children of Florida deserve the very best public schools the state can provide. Taxpayer dollars should be spent in public schools, not private religious academies."
How sweet it is.
