"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

Wake County and Tedesco Featured on Colbert

From NBC17:
Colbert quoted Tedesco during the segment:

"If we had a school that was, like, 80 percent high-poverty, the public would see the challenges, the need to make is successful. ... Right now, we have diluted the problem, so we can ignore it."

Colbert responded with this sarcastic remark:

"See!  Misguided government do-gooders foolishly diluted the problem by addressing it.  We need to ignore it so we'll pay attention to it. Because folks, I think we all know, nothing captures Americans more than concentrating the poor in one location."
