  •  Blowback (5+ / 0-)

    You're absolutely right about the potential for blowback, and that's part of the bigger problem.  

    The majority of my students' parents are not the ones that will rise up in protest over the fact that their children are labeled as "failing" because they hardly have time to sleep at night let alone worry about how their child is doing in school.  There again is the breakdown, and that is the true "Shame of the Nation," to quote Jonathan Kozol.  

    I'm not saying that students of low socio-economic status should be given more opportunities than other children, but they should, at least, get the same ones, and they're definitely not getting that.

    Thanks for reading.
