"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

PBS Science Reporting, Brought to You By the Koch Boys

I just watched the most pathetic piece of reporting on the global warming "debate," as the reporter referred to the 97% of scientists who acknowledge manmade global warming.

Now here's a question for you: If 97 out of 100 weathermen, with their colorful spaghetti of computer models, were telling you that a hurricane was on the way that would wipe of 80 percent of all animal species in your town, would you stay tuned for more "debate" on whether or not it was coming, or would you move to higher ground?

Debate?  Really?
