Also, the incarceration rates is high among the black males which could be attributed to psychological factors, insecurity, lack of jobs and even mistrust from the larger community. There is, therefore, a need to for recommendation to ending the disparities in the American education system. The research paper will also analyze the need for further research and the challenges that may arise in the application of the recommendations. Recommendations The education policy makers through the government should implement policies that ensure that there are equal chances for the black and white students in the learning institutions. The school management should also assess factors that hinder the performance of the black male students.
Colored people feel as if they are not able to succeed like whites can. There are pros and cons about tracking, some people may say that tracking shapes your academic confidence if you’re gifted, but in my opinion, tracking is ineffective because if someone is not as smart as others, they will be put in low tracking classes. This makes those students who are not as smart as the rest feel like they are not good enough or do not fit in. I have friends who can relate because they were put into special education classes growing up and they would compare themselves to others. They were basically in the low tracking classes while others who did better in their academics were in the high tracking classes.
“The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal” a quote by Aristotle. This quote means that even though we can try to make things unequal things equal it’ll be a difficult way to do so .There is inequality in the United States in regards to Racial Inequality, Education Inequality, and Gender Inequality. African American’s ability to live a fruitful life is negatively impacted by racism in regards to their education. It is observed that white teachers are known to label their black students as troublemakers. For black students who have a degree, their job isn’t guaranteed to them.
Because of this lack of English education, we fail to assimilate the students to be functioning members of the United States. The way we are able to assimilate students is to create better programs for students who are learning English; that way, when it is time to enter the workforce, they will be able to understand what it takes to move ahead in this country. The article states that “Good bilingual immersion programs provide such an environment by giving English speakers and English learners ample opportunities to interact in and out of the classroom.” Assimilation relies on the need to acquire the social and psychological features of a group. Most Latino students in schools today hold a very small grasp on our language and our social system, which is partly due to the rampant segregation. Because of their little interactions with other social, ethical, and economical groups, they deny themselves to the ability to learn from people of success.
Research has shown that lack of individuality and comfort among student results due to student wearing uniforms. Deciding on whether uniforms are right for your child depends on individual circumstances. There have also been a lot of questions about whether public school uniforms are excellent for children. The choice to implement a school uniform policy is viewed as difficult and will likely be the topic of debate for years to come. References Anderson, Wendell (2002).
5 Brown v. Board of Education There were many arguments both for and against school segregation. One was the claim that educational decisions were to be left to the state and local courts, and not to be decided by the Supreme Court. Another was that students should be taught where they are most comfortable learning. It was thought that white children were more comfortable learning with white children and the same goes for African-American children. Also, students must be given and equal learning environment, not the same school.
M;l.,m/any people get confused and mix these two reasons and their meanings up. People seem to think that the internalized racism is correlated with whites and the internalized white supremacy is correlated with African Americans. This has become the result of our school systems failures. In this day in age, many people need to understand the differences between these two terms.
In middle school, one time, I overheard a conversation between caucasian and colored students, both of whom were coordinating a school project together, but the caucasian students dominated the project and refused to listen to the advice from students of color. The colored students called the white students “bigoted”, but the white students preferred “individualistic”. The positive connotation of ‘individualistic’, which enhanced the reputation of the white students more than the negative connotation of ‘bigoted’, which actually endangered reputations of colored students. The suggestion of ‘individualistic’ by white students to replace ‘bigoted, which was offered by colored students, contributes to the inferiority of colored ideas as opposed to white ideas and annihilates the self-esteem of black students, whilst boosting the ego of white students. Despite different connotations, both words refer to an intolerance of new ideas by white students.
Therefore if the minorities were to be given a better chance and not put directly into special education with assumptions because of their ethnicity. This argument has been my third and final one. Conclusively I am strongly against school tracking because of its many effects on the children. Some of those effects that it brings upon the children is that the lower tracked students may not learn a lot. Also because some students could get educationally misplaced.
Unfortunately, as educators, we can’t reach every single student, at every single time. There are times when students get “brushed under the rug,” and in my opinion, I feel as though that is what happens to our racial and ethnic minority students as well as our low-income students. Not only are these students underrepresented within a general education setting, they are also underrepresented when it comes to school programs such as gifted. Burney and Beilke stated, “It is well documented that students from racial minorities are traditionally underrepresented in these programs.,” when referring to the gifted classroom setting. These students are underrepresented for a variety of reasons such as standardized testing, attendance, behaviors, getting the education they need in their early years to prepare them, and getting home exposure of content (2008) Burney and Beilke also
