"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

Support FairTest

Michael Winerip has this profile of the testing "watchdog," FairTest. From where I sit, fundraising for the watchdog would be much further along if it watched less and barked more. When you send your check, please remind them that appeasement is not the answer.

Please support FairTest by making a tax-deductible donation.
