"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

Watch Karen Lewis Call It What It Is

On PBS, nonetheless.  If you want to see the fire that will burn down the corporate whore house that is now in charge of our children's education in urban America, watch Karen Lewis on PBS tonight.

I am assuming it will be posted later on the PBS site unless Bill Gates intercedes on behalf of the oligarchs that he leads.

Protect Karen Lewis: she is only one I have seen who has the courage, the intelligence, caring, and the fire to galvanize an education for democracy movement.
