"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

Publishers to Bush on Memoir: "Take Your Time"

Pretty soon we won't have George Bush to kick us around anymore, and the great national nightmare will only be a unforgettable post-traumatic stress disorder.

Bush says that he would like to write about his days in office, but publishers don't seem particularly eager, as reported by HuffPo.

NEW YORK — In less than three months, President-elect Barack Obama will take office and the Bush administration will belong to history. With the president reportedly interested in writing about his White House years, publishers have a suggestion:

Take your time.

"If I were advising President Bush, given how the public feels about him right now, I think patience would probably be something that I would encourage," says Paul Bogaards, executive director of publicity for Alfred A. Knopf, which in 2004 released Bill Clinton's million-selling "My Life."

Meanwhile, there is this that you may read as a bedtime story. Goodnight, Bush.
