    Rafe shows that those that claim immigrants and
    students from poor families can't be taught are
    wrong. His 5th grade students read literature that most high school students don't read in a modern public school classroom. The fact that
    he has these students doing Algebra 1 in fifth grade shows that all students are able to preform
    at a far higher level than the colleges of education will admit. The colleges of education
    teach future teachers that students from low SES
    can't learn. Esquith shows that all students can
    achieve far higher than what most wealthy suburban public school children do.
