"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

Not News (But is News): Concerns Over Imagine Charter

The Riverside Unified School District is expressing concerns over Imagine's attempt to open a charter in the area. This was recently in the Press-Enterprise:

Resolution would oppose charter school

When it meets Monday, the Riverside Unified School District board will consider a resolution opposing Imagine Schools Riverside County's charter petition.

Imagine withdrew its charter petition in Coachella Valley after staff there identified reasons to deny it, according to the resolution in Riverside. Imagine now seeks a countywide charter but is still changing its proposal, the resolution says. The Riverside Unified petition expresses concerns about Imagine's plans to open a school within Riverside.

Update: More info about last night's meeting here. Imagine will open their first school in CA this year (Imperial Valley).
