Mike Rose details the faults of the education system in a piece concerning his own personal experiences. His high school education was radically changed when his school swapped his test scores with the scores of a student with the same last name. The system depended upon test scores to determine the path of classes that individual students must take, and due to the weak performance reflected in Mike Rose’s alleged scores, he was placed on the vocational path. Unfortunately, the vocational path was implied to be the lowest tier of classes in the school - so despite Rose’s natural intelligence, he was placed within remedial classes due to the IQ within his file.

From a young age society teaches us that people like Chris are second-class citizens, and just because they have disability they are therefore inferior both mentally as well as physically. And though it’s not right, a lot of people seem to think that way, including Mike Barbour and Rich Marshall. This learned ignorance in which we have grown so accustomed is the reason why Chris has been stuck in the back of the classroom his whole life. “We sat in rows, the person with the best grades in the front seat to his far left, moving down the academic gradient to Chris Coughlin in the back seat of the right-hand row” (Crutcher 128).

In major cities across the United States schools that poverty stricken African American students attend are segregated, not in a legal sense, but because of location.
