Unfortunately our education system has failed the black community as well as the poor (I include all poor not just minorities) since the majority of money goes to new schools in the suburbs, with drop out rates being extremely high for urban and rural areas. Colleges recruit athletes and for many poor students in general that is one of the only way to get scholarships that can help pay for school while many believe that there are so many "freebies" out there to go to school there are only a limited amount and schools continue to increase tuition each year soon making a higher education an almost unreachable goal for many. The statistics of minority students attending a school such as UCLA is pitiful and the statement about those with privilege hitting triples and being born on third base is true and becoming more so in our society. We no longer live in a country where anyone can become anything and  while he speaks of minorities he could very well be speaking of the economic differences that divide our country and prevent good students from attending these schools while those with money and access are given every advantage.

The show was pretty good even though it had some inaccuracies my wife and I kept pointing these out.

Can't believe what this school has done to a student because of fear and ignorance. This is in no way indicative of the way that schools should be teaching students nor in handling situations. Yet is typical of the liberal mindset of those in the administration of zero tolerance laws with little common sense towards the application of those laws. Teaching the young how to think for themselves and become productive members of society is what schools should be striving for in today's academic environment. Yet instead choose to apply conformity with society and "groupthink" as the model of education, this is what A-Tech has chosen to do with its time and energy outside of academia.
