You get a clear proof that race and class segregation are the greatest impediments to reducing the achievement gap. Poor Blacks in middleclass white schools do better than those in enriched programs in low income dominant schools. Poor whites do not experience concentrated poverty the way Blacks do. Everything that we do to act like we are willing to spend money to "End the Achievent Gap" is our nation's way of accepting "segregation" and feeling comfortable with our societal decision.
