A story in the Dec. 8, 1999, issue of Education Week contained incorrect information about the plaintiffs in the Abbott v. Burke school funding lawsuit in New Jersey. The Education Law Center in Newark represents all students in 30 poor urban school districts in the suit.
A prediction by West Virginia Gov. Cecil H. Underwood incorrectly appeared as a direct quotation in a Dec. 15 story about the National Education Association's 1959 time capsule, "NEA Unseals 40-Year-Old Prophecies on Nation's Schools." The statement that "the student of tomorrow will be his own teacher" paraphrased what the governor had written.
