"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

Feller and Spellings Spin and Lie Through Early Stages of Reading First Disaster

Feller is now calling this first in a series of investigations of Reading First by the Inspector General's Office an "audit." An AUDIT!! And the undeniable law breaking is now pegged as "ethical lapses." And near the end of the piece, Feller has this blatant lie from Spellings, herself:
Spellings said the problems happened in the early days of the program, which began in 2002, before she was secretary. She said those responsible have left the agency or been reassigned.
That is an outright and bald-faced lie. What about Doherty, Mr. Bold and Extra-Legal, himself? And all the thugs he managed? The cover-up has obviously begun.
