A state policy update on Mississippi in Education Week's special report Quality Counts 2002: Building Blocks for Success, published as the Jan. 10 issue, provided incorrect information about a study of child-care programs. The Early Childhood Institute at Mississippi State University conducted a study on the quality of selected child-care programs that received Temporary Assistance for Needy Families grants to make quality improvements. A second study, conducted by the Civitan International Research Center's Regional Early Childhood Team, examined well-being indicators for children in child-care programs in selected counties.
A correction in the Jan. 9 issue regarding the "People in the News" column provided an incorrect date on an item about Charlotte Gemmel, the president and chief operating officer of the Metropolitan Teaching and Learning Co. in New York City. The item first appeared in the Dec. 5 issue.
