An article in the Nov. 28, 2001, issue of Education Week about the San Diego school district's focus on principals' instructional role incorrectly identified the teacher of the lesson described at Miramar Ranch Elementary School. In addition, the school's principal has said that he did not make the comment about the lesson's instructor attributed to him. The principal of Curie Elementary School has said that she did not make the remarks attributed to her elsewhere in the story.
The "People in the News" column in the Dec. 5 issue misstated the title of Charlotte Gemmel and the location of the headquarters of the Metropolitan Teaching and Learning Co. Ms. Gemmel is the president and chief operating officer of the company, which is based in New York City.
