  1. In the well-researched article regarding Grattan School the writer flags both scenarios as negative: Mixed race and poorly and mediocre performance in Y2000 or white and high performing as currently.

    She lets the under-funded school system off the hook. Fund the schools at a higher level, lower class sizes to 24 through 8th grade, attract the private school kids and add more adults in the school and just maybe it will be positive for everyone.
