A Commentary on the closing of the University of Chicago's department of education in the Nov. 12, 1997, issue of Education Week incorrectly stated that the department "has not graduated a teacher in nearly 20 years." The university, in fact, has offered master's degree programs in teaching for many years that lead to certification for teaching mathematics or English.

The student-to-computer ratio in Maine schools was reported incorrectly in Technology Counts, a special report published Nov. 10 by Education Week. Maine schools have an average of eight students per computer.

Also in Technology Counts, Amy Derby, the Alaska liaison for the Northwest Regional Technology in Education Consortium, was misidentified. The number of computers British Petroleum donated to Alaska schools was also incorrect. The company donated approximately 1,500 used computers to the state's schools last year.

An item in the People column in the Nov. 5 issue incorrectly described Lois Harrison-Jones' former position at the Harvard University graduate school of education. Ms. Harrison-Jones was an associate in education.
