    by wealth, race, and everything else.  Put them all together and we will create a better world.  I went to a public school in a small Connecticut town, and at that school there were immigrant children mixed in with children of the rich.  We had old fashioned teachers, mostly women, who were fantastic, and an old fashioned principal who drilled us on diction.  The school was like a big family.  I don't remember any private schools in that town, except for a Catholic school, but the children at our school were always ahead of them on learning.  I loved going to that school and will always remember the fantastic teachers I had.  When I graduated from college, I got a card from one of my seventh grade teachers who was probably one of the best teachers I've ever seen, and that includes college.  She was strict,as were most of the teachers in that school,  but not cruel, and she really knew how to teach.
