"I hear the comments consistently from teachers and parents: 'I remember, I remember, I remember.' And they're not remembering back 30 years ago.They're remembering back 15 years ago," Gomez-Potter says.
To them, the demographic changes automatically go hand in hand with lower academic achievement, she observes.
"But they're not believing all children can learn," the principal adds."We need to change with the community."
