Our March 11 article "Separate and Unequal at Berkeley's Small Schools" included several errors. Student Body President Ronald Pernell was incorrectly identified as Ronald Purnell. Berkeley High Jacket editor Megan Winkelman was incorrectly identified as Megan Coleman. PTA President Mark van Krieken was identified as Mark Van Kriegan and incorrectly referred to as a supporter of small schools. On several references, the small school Communication Arts & Sciences was incorrectly identified as Community Arts & Sciences. An old quote lifted from the Berkeley Parents Network web site incorrectly stated that students at the Community Partnerships Academy small school can't take advanced placement English; in fact, they can. Finally, our article incorrectly stated that a recent article in the Berkeley High Jacket "provided substantive evidence" for a series of accusations recently leveled by three Berkeley High science teachers. While the Jacket story did indeed document some of the letter's assertions, it was not the conclusive proof that our story may have suggested it was.
