The High-income Students are Where?

We’re not always logical when it comes to the way we use the English language. Stories about schools and education policy, for example, may mention “low-income students.”

I don’t think I’ve ever met a student, at least a K-12 student, who is not a “low-income” individual. Somehow I’ve missed seeing those 14-year-old middle managers, doctors, and small-business owners who have figured out how to turn a comfortable profit.
