"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

Doug Lemov, the New John Dewey of Charter Ed

I blogged about the new Relay School of Ed (Relay School of Education: The New Test U School of Penal Pedagogy for the Poor) when it first appeared early last year.  It requires its candidates raise student test scores before they can earn their Masters, even though Relay is a department of no university.  Now Carol Burris has posted a follow-up with more details at Valerie's blog at WaPo.
