"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

Voucher Meltdown Brings Desperation Moves in Florida
Florida neocons are trying to buy time for their unconstitutional voucher programs while they debate whether or not to introduce a constitutional amendment that would allow public dollars to pay for church schools. The Florida House is now moving a bill forward to allow corporate tax credits to pay for church ed, while requiring no accountability in terms of FCAT requirements. This kind of bogus legislation points to the desperation of the fat little brother to save his legacy as the standard bearer for Christian indoctrination at public expense. As has been asked before, how does a corporation get a tax credit for a non-public contribution?
