I haven't always been of this opinion, but I've come around to it over the last few years. "Four decades of research has found that the single best thing one can do for a low-income student is give her a chance to attend a middle-class school... A low-income student given the chance to attend a middle-class school is likely to be surrounded by peers who are academically engaged and less likely to act out; a set of parents who volunteer in the classroom and know how to hold school officials accountable; and high-quality teachers who have high expectations."
