"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

Florida "Justice" Redux

A couple of questions to consider in the Jordan Davis murder by Michael Dunn:

How does a jury convict of attempted murder charges (which it did) and fail to convict on murder charges (which it did not), when there is a dead body of the atttemptee in the room bleeding on the floor?

If a black man in Florida, or anywhere else, shot with deadly force into a car filled of unarmed white boys, how many minutes would it take to deliberate his fate--if he were lucky enough to make it court?
