A story in the April 19, 2006, issue of Education Week on U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings’ trip to India (“Spellings Joins Passage to India on Education,”) identified India’s minister of science and technology as Shri Kapil Sibal. “Shri” is an honorific term similar to “Mr.”; it is not part of the minister’s name.
A story in the May 3 issue on the U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to hear a student religious-speech case (“High Court Declines to Hear Case on Pupil’s Use of Religious Images,”) involving the Baldwinsville, N.Y., school district misspelled the name of the judge who wrote the previous decision in the case. He is Guido Calabresi of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit.
