"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

Corporate Media (and Clinton) Lock Arms in Hopes of Saving Obama
After calling up the corrupt dinosaur, Larry Summers, to make his economic mushroom cloud statement threat yesterday, which got hooted off the Hill by everyone except Fox News, today it is the great Triangulator's turn: Obama brings in Clinton to tag team against Bernie Sanders and who else? no one.
Bernie Sanders, singular patriot, who Chris Mathews has marginalized again today with his loud-mouth whining Far Left label--why not just say communist--as everyone else is labeled who does not bow before the corporate dealmakers who own Obama's skinny ass, Clinton's fat ass, and the majority of the made men and ladies of Washington, who, no doubt, will close out this bit of theater with a yes vote to support one termer, Barack Obama. Long live the Oligarchs.
Obama was so desperate for positive PR today that might appeal to sane people that he invited in the back door of the White House a handful of school kids whose victimization by his education policies were highlighted in the documentary, Race to Nowhere. Where was Arne for the photo op? That's right, nowhere to be seen.
