Kids at these wealthy schools are more likely to get disability accommodations. Does that give them the edge into college?
Nearly one out of 10 students at some of the area's wealthiest high schools have a disability designation that can give them more time to take tests, including college-entrance exams. The rates are vastly greater than at high-poverty schools in North Texas where fewer than 3 percent of students have such classifications, raising questions as to what the disparity could mean in the high-stakes world of college admissions.
