"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

    This video and the way Professor Wong eloquently portrays the "dangers" of No Child Left Behind and the push towards national standards and more testing is really powerful and inspiring - just to know people like him are out there despite the authoritarian, fearful control freaks like Bill Gates and the politicians who are know-nothings when it comes to education but hold all the power. It gives me hope.

    Thanks for sharing.
