    It's been argued by scholars that parents - not teachers or the educational opportunities - are the largest predictive factor in a child's prospects for upward mobility. Forget the fancy language there, the point is: parents matter most of all, and teachers take the blame all too often.

    Or as the phrase goes, "Those who can't teach, blame about teachers."

      DannyCoFED, I am sorry to inform you that your research is wrong. Actually, income is the stronger predictor of student success and upward mobility. Hence, the article calling for fair wages for all Americans. Thanks for your comment.
