Education, Race, and Poverty (Or... Should I do TFA?)

A black student in public school in the Mississippi Delta receives a vastly different education than a white student in private school in Massachusetts.  Why?  What are the factors that go into someone being successful?  How does race, and racism, play a part?  What are the remedies?  Do programs like TFA make a difference?  How do we measure good teaching?  And what does Finland have to teach us about all of this?
