"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

More on the "65% Solution"

From Kevin Franck at PFAW:

People For the American Way has just published a new educational tool to help explain the so-called “65% Solution.”

Behind the Curtain is a graphic comic strip that offers a brief introduction to the newest right-wing attack on public education, what we call the 65% Deception. A version of the comic formatted for printing on legal size paper can be found here

Please feel free to distribute this comic widely and let me know if you have any questions.
