You make an important point. We are not doing as well by any of our student populations as we could be. For example, research shows that even middle class Black students who attend resource poor schools perform lower than their white counterparts. The recent drop in SAT reading scores also suggests that we are putting too much emphasis on lower level skills and test preparation---for everyone---and not enough on rich, challenging learning experiences.
