Many in the world of academia have not worked in the actual fields they are teaching. It's all theory based on others who have longer experience in theory. How about real people who have experience from across all subject matters come up with curricula? And how about we STOP labeling kids as "underserved," ""disadvantaged;" or "privileged"? Have the doers create our standards and we will see higher performance out of all of our students - no matter what ridiculous label someone thrust upon them. We are all born with a blank slate.
