A story about the U.S. Department of Education's guidance on new Title I school improvement funds, "Ed. Dept. Issues Rules on Using Title I Funds To Improve Schools," in the March 8, 2000, issue of Education Week gave an incorrect date for President Clinton's radio address commenting on the program. He gave the address Feb. 26.
A story in the March 1 issue on recent indicators in mathematics and science education, "More Students Take Math, Science, While Many Teachers Unprepared," incorrectly stated the proportion of middle school teachers certified in the areas they teach. In the 1997-98 school year, 72 percent of math teachers and 73 percent of science teachers in the 7th and 8th grades were certified in their subjects.
