Let dumb Americans pick our produce, roof our houses, pick up our trash and dig our ditches. If the dumb would drop out then we won't have to be so mad at our teachers for not being able to teach them. Think of how our STEM scores would improve vs. Europe.

I still think the expectations for kids are too low due to the bad students being so far behind.
it may be hard with buses and all, but will applying the tipping point principle to school reward will make poorer students want to achieve?
How about creating a single magnet program for elementary, middle school, and high school where the magnet school is funded for great technology and teachers, but more importantly "cool" things.
Interesting the good schools suck, and yet they are good. You certainly are using persuasive logic. You go to a crap school?
