"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

From Clinton Campaigner, Miller Staffer Heads to TFA

From Alexander Russo's This Week in Education:

On The Move: Miller Staffer Heads To TFA

Former Clinton campaign educationista Catherine Brown has left her spot working for George Miller and is now at TFA, I'm told. She arrived in Miller's office last year (see Hill profile here).

Her official title was Senior Education Policy adviser, House Committee on Education and Labor. Her new title is VP for Strategy & Operations, Public Affairs. Congrats, condolences.

The revolving door - it ain't just in healthcare and the military.
