"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

Posted as a NCTE blog:
The National Education Association just voted "No Confidence" in the Race to the Top Guidelines & the use of competitive grants by the Dept of Education. 
I propose that NCTE do the same.
