"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

No Child Left Behind Documentary

This film was produced by Lerone Wilson on a shoestring budget -
too bad, it's taken more than 10 years for the rest of the nation to catch on.
So much damage has been done because of high stakes standardized testing.
Only two students this week at my school threatened to commit suicide.
Could it be related to the NJ Ask Test?
Perhaps someone should "ask" those students.
