Tim,

I like the beginning of the article that says Bloom found that students 
given one-on-one attention reliably perform two standard deviations 
better than peers in a regular classroom, which is enough that a student 
in the middle of the pack will vault into the 98th percentile. I think 
that will catch students' attention and perhaps make more of them 
willing to come to the academic resource center.

The comments following the article help to put Khan's phenomenal 
accomplishments into perspective, lest the masses erroneously conclude 
that his Academy will cure all of education's ills.

Thanks for sharing the link!
Lois
