I don’t doubt this is true but then again there is a study to support every stance in education.
This is just excuse making though really. Like everything, there’s a continuum. You have to start somewhere with social change and education is one of the best places to try.
You only have to look at the facilities to know there isn’t parity though and I’d imagine great teachers aren’t excited by bombed out classrooms.
It’s easy to poke holes in everything but what would you suggest is the quick fix to broken fatherless communities? I would say do more to help that small percentage who may have the fortitude and luck to get ahead.
Or, assuming what you say is true, let’s spend the same amount on the middle class white kids school and see what the parents do. We could always send you in with copies of the study.
