This is related, again, to generational poverty and what that means to our students.
Generational poverty effects the students’ likelihood of getting good grades. Â Getting good grades within generational poverty means that you lose your friends.
A Constrained VisionÂ has a series of quotes from Roland Fryer onÂ â€œacting whiteâ€, meaning getting good grades and how that effects the number of friends you have.
low grades = no effect on friendship
higher grades (for whites) = more popularity
higher grades (for blacks) = same number of friends at 2.9
higher grades (for Hispanics) = least number of friends
