Problem is- a lot of those bad reputation schools are places where the teachers are not provided the tools needed to teach, forcing many teachers to go out and buy supplies out of their own pocket (and God bless those teachers who do)
Also, not every teacher is prepared to play the role of Michelle Pfeifer in Dangerous Minds. I know that's a bit of an exaggeration but I think you get the point.
