"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

On the President's New "Pre-School Initiative” By Mark Naison

On the President's New "Pre-School Initiative”
By Mark Naison

Test them in the cradle
Test them in the crib
Test them in the infant seat
And when they wear a bib
Test them eating baby food
And when they ride a bike
Test them when they fall asleep
Or picking up a mike
If you don't test your infants
They'll never get a job
Sorting shirts in Wal-Mart
They'll probably steal and rob
The entire US economy
Depends on taking tests
We'll never compete globally
And fall behind the rest
