A story in the Jan. 29, 2003, issue of Education Week (print edition) about alleged misconduct by officials of the Washington Teachers' Union misspelled on its first reference the name of the official appointed by the American Federation of Teachers to administer the local union. His name is George C. Springer.
That same story underrepresented the proportion of District of Columbia teachers who have received outright reimbursements for a $144 overcharge in union dues. Members who request reimbursements continue to receive them, and, as of last week, almost half had received the money owed them.
In the article titled "Righting Race" (Published Dec. 4, 2002), the following correction must be made. High school student Ameera Patel is multiracial. She has black and white ancestry as well as Indian.
