    in Mississippi, public schools in these areas don't really want to send their students out into the wider world, except maybe as part of the military.  They'll take bragging rights for admissions to elite schools, but the fact that they have a chronic case of 'brain drain' isn't lost on them or good for their inflated self-regard.  It's much preferable to force their bright kids into conformity or failing that, watch them drown in misery and make their less-accomplished peers feel superior.
