    County, Maryland.  High concentrations of poverty seems to be the issue, let me clarify, high poverty SCHOOLS.  In Montco, Maryland some high poverty kids went to school that were high income and some low income.  The low income kids in high poverty schools did better.  

    The kids were randomly selected so you don't have the argument that more engaged parents sent their kids to low poverty schools.  

    As someone said above, the schools can't fix everything but neither can "engaged parents" if their kids are in horrible schools.  Another thing, the kids got a better education but their household income, family make-up, parental engagement stayed the same as their peers who were lo-poverty.

    I for one am tired of pandering to perpetrators --- many of whom are opposed to any discussion however it comes. -- soothsayer99 DPK Caucus
