Equal Opportunity for Edcuation

As the tag line reads in my header, "There is a big difference between an equal opportunity for education and an equal opportunity for an equal education," in light of Ken's post and my reply there may be more needed to clarify.

Indeed,"equal opportunity for an equal education" may inherently require unequal treatment in different school settings.

Let's just ask three questions here. What's the difference between public schools in Compton, CA and Beverly Hills, CA? Given that both school districts are in the general Los Angeles vacinity, why are they so different and how should we fix the disparity between the two?
