    "But there ain't no stinkin data" Educational researchers are out to prove the obvious; rich kids do better on standardized tests than poor kids. Unfortunately, no one seems to have any data on income. How convenient. Teacher effectiveness can not be objectively assessed without noting all variables - esp. the most important one. Sheez.
