Middle-class schools miss the mark
from The Wall Street Journal
Middle-class public schools educate the majority of U.S. students but pay lower teacher salaries, have larger class sizes and spend less per pupil than low-income and wealthy schools, according to a report. The report, "Incomplete: How Middle-Class Schools Aren't Making the Grade," also found middle-class schools are underachieving. It pointed to their national and international test scores and noted that 28 percent of their graduates earn a college degree by age 26, compared to 17 percent for lower-income students and 47 percent for upper-income students.
