A cheer went up at District of Columbia Mayor Adrian Fenty’s campaign headquarters – a used-car dealership – when news reached supporters that a Superior Court judge had rejected his opponent’s petition to extend voting hours into the night.
City Council Chairman Vincent Gray, who is challenging Fenty in the Democratic primary, had argued that delayed openings and other irregularities justified delayed closings, but the judge disagreed. Polls closed at 8 p.m., as scheduled, according to the Board of Elections & Ethics.
"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
