"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

NCLB's Supplemental Corruption in NYC

Last year the sharks in the tutoring industry, who are accountable to no one except their K Street lobbyists for their work students, drained almost $75 million from school coffers in NYC. As we move toward the sunset phase of the most corrupt Administration in American history, we can expect to see, I think, much more of what Condon's investigation turned up in the City. In his words, "I'm hard pressed to think of something they didn't try that didn't skirt the boundaries of ethical behavior."

Any reporters out there looking for a story in any urban center of America?
