Jean, I have thought about that a little as I have gone through my time as ASU. Growing up in Wake County, I was somewhat surprised at the schools in these more rural areas. By no means do I believe that the teachers are lacking in skill or that the students have the inability to do well, but often I saw that the lack of support at home made it more difficult for the students do to well in school. My experience in Caldwell County had a high population of hispanic (ESL) students that I did not experience in the other two counties. In Watauga County I saw a mix of families living in poverty and families who were well off in the same classroom. It made for an interesting dynamic. Bring from a large county and middle-class area, It has been an experience for me to to be in counties who were very different from what I grew up knowing.
