Salt Lake City, Utah

This article is titled incorrectly. It should be best teachers are found in schools frequented by white rich kids. We all know that socio-economic issues and money have nothing to do with educating kids. Every kid comes into the classroom the same, but these kids clearly have better teachers.

I would like to have seen the study focus on single parent households. That would have been more interesting versus skin color. Education success if closely tied to marital status of parents.

Asians are a minority yet almost ignored in these numbers. Why do they ignore the successes of the Asian community? What are they afraid it will tell them about culture instead of race? It doesn't fit the narrative they want to push of big government and racism.

Put those so called better teachers into low income minority schools. Problem fixed?

Downtown Chicago, Washington DC, New York City, LA, etc, could use those better teachers? These schools are paid twenty three thousand dollars per student-a school year for better teachers, and it hasn't worked. That's much more than your rich white schools.

@worf hit the nail on the head. The most heavily funded schools in the nation are the highest underperforming and it has nothing to do with race. The true common denominator, if you're willing to look closely enough- all those cities are held captive by the Democrat monolith.
