"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

A Must See

I am hoping you can post this short but critical message to your readers of Schools Matter.

ALERT: This is a must see movie: "Why We Fight"

If you live in a blue urban area, it'll be playing in a theater near you. If not, please bookmark it for your DVD reference.

As we fight to save the public schools, we must always keep the bigger picture in the foreground, namely that our country is sliding quickly from its foundation of democratic principles, towards one of corporate socialism based on unharnessed capitalism...and the war industry is the primary source which controls and feeds it. The history and serious ramifications of our war industry must be exposed along with the greed and corruption that has seeped into every pore of our decaying democracy, here and around the world. Only by becoming alert to the seriousness of what is going on (all politicians are complicit), can we hope to save our union. Good luck, and keep fighting....
