A chart in the Dec. 10, 1997, issue of Education Week incorrectly reported data on public education in Vermont. The number of K-12 students in the state is 115,788 this school year, and the state's fiscal 1998 K-12 budget is $231.6 million.
An article in the Jan. 14, 1998, issue on the prospects for a merger of the national teachers' unions failed to clarify that when the American Federation of Teachers was founded in 1916, it was affiliated only with the American Federation of Labor. As the story noted, the AFL merged with the Congress of Industrial Organizations in 1955. At that time, the AFT became a member of the new AFL-CIO.
