No Excuses In Anti-Poverty Policy As Well


I'm not sure the portrayal of the "no excuses" side is inaccurate. Here is, for example, EEP's mission statement: "The Education Equality Project is leading a civil rights movement to eliminate the racial and ethnic achievement gap in public education by working to create an effective school for every child." I don't think it is caricaturing that to call it a "schools only" approach.
