  1. Pretty racist post, don't you think? You don't think any of the parents at KIPP schools are college educated? Why's that, because they're people of color? Because the majority are poor and you don't think college educated people would send their kids to school with poor kids? Wow.

  2. Too many people concerned with social justice issues people will jump on what they consider a racist approach, but the fact is that the students referred to here have different needs than the children of the so-called college educated.

    All children aren't the same! It's pure idiocy to think otherwise and pretend that there some "one approach serves all" will work.

    The question should be whether KIPP or any charter school is going to be better at helping these children than the public schools. Personally, I seriously doubt it.
