A Tribune op-ed that came out last winter had a very interesting story about a black student who commuted an unrealistic distance from home. I wondered after reading that, why someone is automatically assumed to be receiving an inferior education just based upon test scores, when the environment that they must live and work in is so different. I thought that the expectations, given the mother's work schedule and lack of another adult in the household to help, were unrealistic. It made me very angry at the inherent unfairness of this act (it is so blind and waspish).
