The purpose of indian schools, to force Native Americans to conform to “american” customs, was fulfilled through these actions. Children were forced to abandon their own religion, and attend sunday school .

In Lynda Barry’s essay “The Sanctuary of School” the author gives her personal feelings about the education system and when times get hard the first thing to go from the schools are the art programs and the after school care. She than talks about how her home was not a safe and stable place to live with her brother and she found her school to be a safe haven.

The residential school was a government-sponsored religious school founded to assimilate aboriginal children into the Euro-Canadian culture. Originally, Christian schools and Canadian governments have attempted to educate and convert indigenous adolescents into Euro-Canadian society, which has confused life and community and caused long-term problems among the indigenous peoples. With the passage of the British North America Act in 1867 and the implementation of the Indian Act (1876), the government was required to provide Indigenous youth with an education and to integrate them into Canadian society. Large numbers of aboriginal children in Canada were required to attend go to the residential schools. In the article "Impact of residential schooling and of child abuse on substance use problem in Indigenous Peoples" by Amélie Ross states,"According to the First Nations Regional Longitudinal
The oppression of Aboriginal people continues until today. In the 19th century, the government introduced things like the Residential Schools that applied only to First Nations. The Residential Schools were the government’s way of assimilating aboriginal kids. They wanted to make sure that the Aboriginal culture doesn’t get carried on from generation to generation. Moreover, getting their rightful land stripped away wasn’t enough, so they were sent to the parts of Canada that have very few resources.
For instance, the people of Canada have acknowledged the immorality and are now working their way to reconciliation for the past failures towards Indigenous peoples. Before Europeans arrived in North America, Indigenous people were able to satisfy the living requirements through the resources of the natural environment. These people educated their youth in a complex and traditional matter such as participation in cultural and spiritual rituals, group socialization and oral teachings. These techniques provide children the beliefs, skills and knowledge considered necessary for adult life in their bands. All of these techniques continue today, but the importance of these specific characteristics have been significantly reduced due to the effects of residential schools.
Despite the contrasting environment, private school students are no different than public school students. In an online manifesto, If You Send Your Kid to Private school you are bad, Allison Benedikt, an executive editor states, “But many others go private for religious reasons, or because their kids have behavioral or learning issues, or simply because the public school in their district is not so hot”. This proves that private schools are not filled with angels, but rather kids who have behavioral issues and need that extra help. In senior writer and editor John S Kiernan’s, online article, Private Schools vs. Public Schools - Experts Weigh In, Patrick J. Wolf, Ph.D, proclaims, “Private schools also are becoming more diverse, as their enrollments increasingly include minority and low-income students”. Similar to a public school, private schooling have their low, medium and upper class students.

Orwell’s own personal life may have contributed to this biased perception of the educated. In his studies as a child, Orwell was unpopular among other students. He noticed that his richer peers were treated better by his teachers, and he could not continue his higher education because of his own financial problems (“George Orwell Biography”). His negative experiences with education in his early life tainted his perception of the
Obama (2012) said, "This job of keeping our children safe, and teaching them well, is something we can only do together, with the help of friends and neighbors, the help of a community, and the help of a nation." Therefore, trying to help America as a whole would require a large number of people, but we can make our school safe. It is a small step toward a safer education. There have been many tries to make schools safer, yet we still hear about new ones weekly. It has devastated so many families.
As what we have observed, not all courses and year levels are covered with this implementation. Many teachers and education experts wanted to impose back the five day school week scheme. This gives rise to many students especially those higher year level students that are having a hard time on managing their time doing school works complaining that the four day school week scheme should still be implemented. Although some teachers and education experts agree on a five day school week scheme, we believe that the four day school week scheme is still beneficial for Sillimanians because it reduces traffic and the cost for transportation and utility, it gives
As time moved forward, the relationship between Europeans and Natives started to change, and with this change came forced assimilation. For the Natives, the Europeans saw the forced assimilation as there way of civilizing them (Lahlum, 22 Feb 2017). One of the main features of forced assimilation was Indian Boarding schools. In these schools, they teach the Native children English and Christianity (Laliberte, Natives, Neighbors, and the National Game, 2010). On the other hand, the immigrants from Germany and Scandinavia willingly adapted there culture to include aspects of Minnesota/ American Culture.

Introduction During the year’s children and youth were sent to residential schools in Canada they were treated in such a way that their cognitive and socio-emotional development developed differently then those of a child or youth who did not attend these schools at the time.

Also due to the influence of the west English and most especially French is spoken mainly to aid communication and interaction with visitors. Religion: in Canada there is freedom of religion and a tolerance for the multi-religious groups present in Canada. In Syria however the tolerance for other religious groups outside Islam was little pre-war, but that doesn’t exist anymore especially since the war started. Certain Muslim sects like the Kurds find themselves being hunted down and killed by the fundamentalist Islamic sects. Social habits: Syrian social habits vary on the area in which the person lives in and their social strata.
The essay by kozol shows the harsh reality about the uneven funds and attention given to the schools were many poor and minority students attend. During a visit to Fremont high school in 2003, Kozol claims that school that are in poverty stricken areas appear to worse than school that are in high class neighborhoods. Throughout the essay, kozol correlates between the south central Los Angeles high school and the wealthy high schools that are in the same district.

Kazol compared this to AP classes
