Ariel Sacks, an 8th grade English teacher in NYC, wonders why we allow a system to persist in which disadvantaged kids are routinely concentrated in the same schools. She questions:

In today's education scene, key players seem comfortable looking in the windows of high needs schools and questioning or making suggestions as to how they are funded, staffed, supported, and held accountable (all of which are valid points of discussion). But what about the frame itself for this picture? Aren't we looking at the old ill of segregation and failing to confront it?
