The enrollment in honors classes at the California middle school where teacher Heather Wolpert-Gawron works does not reflect the racial and cultural breakdown of the student body. In this blog post, Wolpert-Gawron writes that honors classes are dominated by Asian students, while Latinos often avoid them. She writes that this is not unusual in the education system and that this trend can be stopped by helping students view education as inclusive -- giving all students the same opportunities to succeed.
