Interesting. I found it a bit self-contradictory, though. Fairly early, there is the graph on SAT score vs. income, showing that the low income bracket score about 400 points lower than the highest. The implication was that rich people were buying better tutoring or education and thus scoring better. That may be part of it, but it may simply mean that parents income correlates kids educational success.Later, the discussion about Harvard reaching out to low income students points out that 35000 of the nation's students were in the top 10% GRADE-wise and in the bottom 25% of parents' income. There are roughly 4 million high school seniors, with 400000 students in the top 10%. Grades don't necessarily correlate to quality of education, but are independent of money spent on education. If there was no income dependency, shouldn't there be about 100000 student from the lowest income quartile?Still in the,Finsternis
