Educating white working class boys.

What's more important, playing politics with white working class boys or educating them?

"One delegate [at the Association of Teachers and Lecturers] said liberal-minded people had stopped highlighting white boys' problems [of underchievement] for fear of lending weight to the arguments of right wing politicians."

So... the lefties' response to the accusation that they're ignoring the problems of white kids is... to ignore the problems of white kids.

Yeah, that'll really help.

Ah! but they are not ignoring the problem of the white kids but instead covering up evidence that will be used by the right.

Ignoring problems is a natural function.
