In researching this, one of the things that I found out was that all the high schools in the school district have nearly identical programs ...

In researching different school districts within the same county, where the official curriculum and standards are the same in all schools, I found that in the better-scoring, higher-income district an elementary school principal said, "Our teachers are professionals. They teach the children what the county requires, and also what they need to know."

After we moved, at the high school parents' night, a math teacher admitted, "We don't really follow the county curriculum, but since we have the highest SAT's in the state, they leave us alone."
