An April 5 Metro headline incorrectly suggested that the D.C. school system had reviewed the performance of the system's principals and found that 25 to 40 percent of them were not up to caliber. D.C. School Superintendent Clifford B. Janey provided those figures in response to a question about what percentage of the principals he thought were not performing adequately.

Because of incorrect information provided by D.C. police, a Crime & Justice item in the April 5 Metro section misidentified a homicide victim. Isaac King, not Dante I. King, was fatally shot early Monday.

The April 4 Sky Watch column incorrectly reported the date of "Exploring the Universe: Family Day" at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum. The correct date is April 16.

An article in the March 27 Magazine incorrectly said that there are seven black managers in major league baseball. In fact, seven managers are minorities -- four African American and three Hispanic.
