Several words were inadvertently dropped from the On Assignment story about the New Orleans schools in the May 2, 2001, issue of Education Week. The incomplete paragraph should have read: “A drive through the area reveals that the same problems that bedeviled the community that surrounds Booker T. when Master P. was growing up are still evident.”
A story in the April 18 issue about the federal requirement that schools filter their Internet services gave an incorrect address for a Web site created by the Consortium for School Networking. The correct address is safewiredschools.org.
The last name of the new executive director of the National Catholic Educational Association’s secondary schools department was misspelled in the March 28 People in the News column. She is Mary Frances Taymans.
