Education Correction

A Commentary article in the Sept. 17, 2008, issue of Education Week, “Common-Sense Ways to Improve Education Without a Tax Increase,” gave an incorrect figure for the total federal debt due to an editing error. It should have been $53 trillion.

An article on early intervening services in the Sept. 10, 2008, issue incorrectly described which level of government must spend 15 percent of its federal special education money. It is school districts, not states, that are sometimes required to spend the money if they have met certain conditions.

A version of this article appeared in the September 24, 2008 edition of Education Week
