The Rich-Poor Divide Starts With Education?

I don't agree with this, since I see a lot of Asian students, who's parents were not rich or educated, do amazingly well in school. I believe the home environment with high expectations is a huge factor in the educational achievements of children. Money is helpful for tutors and such, but it does not create the necessary attitude. I have seen some very rich kids, who do so so in school.
And many lower achieving school districts actually get more money per student than others (such as Diamond Bar where my daughter went), but achieve less. And home schooling can also have some amazing results.
