"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

Maher to Obama: Have the Audacity to Do Something

Obama's out-of-the-box capitulation to the Oligarchs on education issues should have told Americans something, and it would have had the media cared enough to report what is happening. Bill Maher now calls on Obama to do something besides make TV appearances and cave to the insurance companies and Wall Street thieves. Does Obama have to audacity to do something besides hope? We all should hope so, enough to demand it, in fact.
