A Matter Of Opinion

One of these things is not like the other

Today’s editorial disagrees with the cookie cutter approach recently announced in No Child Left Behind: the requirement that minorities and low-income students, which are often statistically behind the curve in graduation rates, graduate at the same rate as every other group, at the risk of schools losing federal financial support — often for the programs that reach out to these at-risk students.
