« What Happens When You Pay a Great Teacher $20,000 to Work in a High-Poverty School? | Main | Does Class Size Matter? »

I've just generally gotten more pessimistic about tracking over time, and I think it more often than not tends to weaken the overall student body when you have too much separation between "gifted" kids and the "regular" student body. If learning is a collaborative process in the classroom (and it should be), then that kind of separation might be weakening that learning experience.

Our government recognizes this in other areas, like the military (that's why we don't have large forces of "special forces" troops).
