CLARIFICATION & CORRECTION
Published March 17, 2005, in issue 0417 of the Hook
The bullet points in last week's letter entitled, Don't blame 'No Child,' come from studies conducted in the 17 years between A Nation at Risk and No Child Left Behind. Zealous Hook editing curtailed the author's assertion that massive additional education spending in the wake of A Nation at Risk did not cure American ignorance.
Pardon our French. Last week's Hot Seat should have read, Médecins Sans Frontières.
