CCSD's Postlewait's Frank Appraisal not a Solution

What else could be concluded from the poor performance of former Lincoln High School students at Wando this year? Yes, lower expectations for poor, mainly black, students have permeated the Charleston County School District for decades.

Now what?

The superintendent has taken the first step: identify the problem. The second step should be to find out exactly how widespread the problem is. 

The third? Propose a solution.

Low expectations do not begin in the eighth grade but in kindergarten. It will be interesting to see how the district addresses the problem. If it can arrive at a solution, millions will cheer.
