I think some parents subconsciously do want their children to become successful and leave them in a low income neighborhood.
I wish I can prove some parents would be intimated if their children were academically superior.
I wish I can prove some parents are more focused on their life and their children's schooling is not a top priority.
I wish I could provide empirical data that show some low income parents subconsciously do not want their children to succeed in school.
I only have theories, so I ask the Consortium on Chicago School Research to conduct a study.
