I am not sure I even understand this question. Probably my lack of
comprehension, can you dumb it down a bit for us Okies my friend?

I am sure that is a more complicated issue than this question implies.
Could language barriers be one reason? How about the income level of
the family? I would guess many drop out to go to work and help provide
financial support. And I would argue that this is not the case with all
minorities. I have read some articles that stated the asian members of
American society are way ahead of any other ethnic group academically
speaking. That is indeed the case at my local secondary school. You
really open quite the can of beans here JP.

May I ask for some statistics that demonstrate this ?
