An article in the Feb. 6, 2002, issue of Education Week on Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, in Fairfax County, Va., incorrectly reported details about Louise Epstein, the parent of a 7th grader who hopes to go to the school. Ms. Epstein, who is half-white and half-Japanese, in her youth lived in a largely African-American public-housing project on Staten Island. She and other children from the New York City borough were bused for desegregation purposes to a school in a predominantly white working-class neighborhood.
