It’s entirely different situations. Test scores *are* going to be lower for a poor kid going to an inner city school where the class sizes are too big, the staff is underpaid, and kids can’t get help when they need it most of the time.

It’s not an apples-to-apples comparison to say those things are related. No matter how intelligent or hard-working a student is, their life situation isn’t necessarily going to allow for them to thrive. This is not nearly the same as wealthy kids going to nicer schools with available help/tutors/well educated parents.
