This study, along with the report on homeless children in America and President Obama's speech on education made for a potentially transcendent week in public education: http://kriley19.wordpress.com/2009/03/15/5-pillars-to-save-a-nation/

Thanks for the link to a great article! This study really does raise interesting questions about how schools are used in America to address issues that are left unresolved on the outside. I'd love to try a discussion with my students about inequalities in our society and about how we frequently attempt to address those differences through the educational system. I imagine it would make for an interesting debate and would serve to get the kids thinking about education and the weightier issues of poverty, equality, justice, and class.
