. . .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
Thank you. This is precisely the kind of listening Yolie Flores Aguilar and Antonio Villaraigosa are committed to. Nice to know the DLC/DFER think racist right wing reaction Newt Gingrich is an accomplished listener as well!
The writing has been on the blackboard since Arnie was put in charge of ed. This is really scary. However, what can we expect from a banana republic with the three stooges are in charge of education, heck of a job Arnie! - you too Obama - you couldn't find anyone with real credentials? What a joke - but it's not funny - it's actually very,very sad that this is where we are as a nation. Keep the business roundtable happy and the money flowing - it's quite obvious who this administration is listening to - and it's not teachers or students. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!
