A story in the April 7, 2004, issue of Education Week (“Tensions High in Buffalo Over Charter Schools”) gave the wrong national affiliation for the Buffalo Teachers Federation. The union is an affiliate of the National Education Association.
In the same issue, a story about an advanced-mathematics program for elementary teachers (“Teachers Get Heavy Doses of Advanced Mathematics”) spelled Penny Stearns’ name wrong. In addition, the story did not give Kenneth Gross’ title at Lesley University. Mr. Gross is a visiting professor.
A story in the April 14 issue about a report on girls’ education issues from the National Women’s Law Center (“Administration Criticized on Girls’ Education Issues”) misquoted Susan Aspey, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Education. In criticizing the report, Ms. Aspey said it amounted to “special-interest politics in a political year.”
