The school board knows that "balanced" schools don't contribute to achievement for all students - they simply make the curve for that school look better. That's why they won't ever conduct a study to show that.
I'm not sure what logic leads one to think that bringing 40 middle-class kids into a school of 500 is going to make the 500 somehow better, instead of bringing down the 40.
