There really is a simple answer. Place high quality options in every school. A tiered (?sp) system. It works great. Everyone gets to SEE what hard work and motivation achieve. The parents don't have to drive the student to a different school.
Stop calling everyone a racist. Most of what you are seeing is a function of lowered expectations. Race may be a factor, but relative preparedness and social status are not race bound. Put the same two shirts and pants on an eight year old child every day and the teacher will lower their expectations. This will happen without regard to skin tone.
And those erroneous statement would be.......... C'mon, you can do this.
