"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

Spellings Low Key During Gulf Tour

Spellings joined the Mary Landrieu tour Thursday to announce $60 in foreign aid for schools and colleges of the Gulf Coast.

No mention of the ED's charter school miracle in the making there. No mention of when the teachers will arrive or when the schools will be ready. Is she grateful, too, to Katrina for all that it has made possible? Does she say, "Thank you, Katrina' all the time," as does Orleans Parish School Board President Phyllis Landrieu.
