This is an EXCELLENT article. What those researchers found is basically what I've come to the conclusion of and have repeated to anybody who would listen. People rush to and pay up for 'top school' neighborhoods like sheep, believing in a link that is actually false. The real link is between parental involvement and student scholastic success, and so the only reason those top schools are top schools is because of the % of parents who ARE actively involved. Have 95% of parents actively invovled in their childrens' education, that school is likely to be a top scoring school. Have 80% (which 80% is high percentage as percentages go), and that is enough to make that school not a top scoring school, but more of an average scoring school. But the kid at the 80% active parents average scoring school has just as much of a chance of scholastic success as the kid at the 95% school, if the child has parents that are in that 80% and not in the 20%.

The 95% school is basically the upgrades on the Lexus (terminology used by one of the researchers)- nice and all, but not important in getting you from one place to another. But so many people are duped into believing that their child attending a top grade school or top high school is their child's best chance for success. And in some ways, it's like a cult because when you try to tell or show many of them the truth, what the data says, how the facts stack up, they get irritated or angry. I've had people in City-Data be combative with me because I discussed the real link to a child's success and how the top schools aren't the magic bullet that people make them out to be. It's as if these folks are ANGRY that lots of kids from less expensive neighborhoods and average scoring schools end up being so successful, just as successful as the top school kids. But they can be angry and have less money, while others can take advantage of the insight, of the data, of the truth, and have more money while still getting scholastic success for their child.

Thanks for posting the article!
