Education Reform Stymied II

by Bob Englehart in Hartford Courant, Englehart provides this note: In my not-so-humble opinion, education reform is linked to economic reform. The achievement gap is not just about schools and students. It's about a family's economic situation. It's about their bum luck, or lack of education, or drug addiction, or whatever it is that has thrust families into poverty.
