  1. Place a lot of low-performing students together and what do you get?

    A low-performing school.

    A much better way to help these students would have been to use the $10,000 to get them into suburban schools or low-cost private schools. Or perhaps Agassi could have raised another $10,000 for each child to attend a moderately priced private school. What these kids need more than anything are student role models. I respect Agassi for trying to help these children but placing them altogether is the worst possible thing.

    (If anyone’s wondering why they did so well on standardized tests but not on the Advanced Placement, it’s likely because it’s not so easy to drill kids on the exact test items on Advanced Placement tests, which are professionally administered and proctored.)
