"A child's learning is the function more of the characteristics of his classmates than those of the teacher." James Coleman, 1972

The Erudite Faction and the TFA Corps

Saw Divergent last evening.  If you haven't seen it, you should.  

Kate Winslet (Jeanine) plays the sci-fi version of the scarier Wendy KIPP Kopp (Wendy).

from the Erudite Manifesto:
Ignorance is defined not as stupidity but as lack of knowledge. Lack of knowledge inevitably leads to lack of understanding. Lack of understanding leads to a disconnect among people with differences. Disconnection among people with differences leads to conflict. Knowledge is the only logical solution to the problem of conflict. Therefore, we propose that in order to eliminate conflict, we must eliminate the disconnect among those with differences by correcting the lack of understanding that arises from ignorance with knowledge. 

As for Teacher for All?  It's TFA gone global.  The Erudite search is now world-wide.
