I don't think the difference between the students of the suburbs and the inner city is genetic so it must be environmental, and that's what must improve. Good teachers should always make more money than bad in every school. You can't distinguish between the two by looking at the teachers degrees, you do it by observing the results of their teaching. Can you tell me a better form of feedback?
