A story in the Aug. 7, 2013, issue of Education Week incorrectly identified one of the investors in the expansion of an early-childhood program in Utah. It is the individual investor, J.B. Pritzker, not the investment company he co-founded.

A story in that same issue on the costs of the common assessments included an incorrect figure for the estimated per-student cost of summative math and English/language arts tests from the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers. It is $29.50.

Another story in that issue, on Head Start, incorrectly reported the program’s fiscal 2012 budget. It was funded at about $7.97 billion. Sequester cuts will reduce funding to $7.6 billion for fiscal 2013.
