An article about a loophole in a federal gun-free-schools law that appeared in the Aug. 2, 2000, issue of Education Week ("Loophole Seen Allowing Guns in Schools") incorrectly stated that South Carolina issues licenses to carry concealed weapons. The state had issued such concealed-weapons permits until last year, when the legislature changed the law.
An incorrect telephone number for obtaining a copy of the National Urban League's report on the state of black America appeared in the same issue. The correct number is (212) 558-5310.
