"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

Imagine's Divorcee; Fined in Florida

Things are looking up for a charter school that divorced themselves from Imagine less than a year ago.  From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
“We were spending lots of money on management fees that should have been spent on children,” said [Principal Kay] Frey of the split.
The school eventually restructured and kept its county charter.
“We had to get to what our charter values were, reduced class sizes and parental input,” Frey said.
Florida recently fined school districts for violating class size limitations.  Guess who racked up a hefty fine?  From News3Jax.com:
Among charter schools, Imagine School at Town Center in Flagler County received one of the largest fines: $143,367.
