"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

School Board Says No to Lily-White Charter

Fayette County, Georgia is over 70 percent white and its median household income is almost twice the state average.  But that is still not white enough or rich enough to suit some Fayette Countians who want their home-schooled or privately-educated children now supported with state funds intended children who choose public education. 

The only vote for the segregated charter came from Tea Party favorite on the Board, Dr. Barry Marchman.
