“Whether they were born to poor white Appalachians or to wealthy Texans, to poor black people in the Bronx or to rich people in Manhasset or Winnetka, they are all quite wonderful and innocent when they are small. We soil them needlessly”

– John Kozol, 1991

This is terribly true, but we’re too much of a capitalist country for all students to even have a some  what equal opportunity.
