    He turned out fine. Then again, I think he went to a private high school.

      (rich and comfortably well off) are traditionally "good."  Poor folks schools are often substandard and grossly underfunded. Years of court cases have been fought over school funding being equitable. Decades.

      Guess what kind of schools the state of Texas used to provide for off-base military brats?

      Anyone going to college was by definition accepted into college. So, he probably did seem fine.  Not all the kids are that lucky.
