@AB Bride:  Given the well known bias of the Fraser Institute, I would have to read the whole study before jumping to any conclusions.

This article seems like it might be confirming my own observations. I’ve been very rich and I’ve been very poor in my childhood and I’ve been to public schools in Alberta, public schools in the US and private schools in developing countries with a very cler line between rich and poor.

By far the hardest working students were always the poorest and the ESL students. They didn’t necessarily have the best grades, but they had the most drive. 

You know what I got a lot of in the private schools? Coddling and good grades that I truly didn’t earn.
