Brooks suggests that with more decisions, a better understanding of decision making is required. He says that it should be implemented into education and believes that this would be especially important for the impoverished. This is because there is a higher risk of failing to develop these decision making skills; they have much less opportunity and lack the same support present in a privileged environment. Brooks references the work of Mullainathan and Shafir and the effects of stress on decision making. The author also draws upon the observations of a school principal he met; the principal observed that simply living in a destitute area could distort decision making
And in Holt’s article, he chose to talk about how he feels that schools in general are causing more harm than good for how kids learn and think in an educational environment. Holt chose to go into great detail and even provide a list of solutions that he believe could change the public school system for the better. Overall, both of these articles touch on a similar subject just from different angles and they both provide evidence or a personal account to support their findings. However, when it comes to education there is no denying that something needs to change to our current education system. Holt believes that the current education system is doing more harm that it is good to children.
For instance, for this student, before reading this book, I would categorize this different types of abuse differently, from more severe to less severe, and perhaps giving less importance to those I viewed as less severe. But it is important to understand that for each of these victims, each abuse was very serious, very severe, and they should be treated equally. This book is also a great source of understanding for those who were perpetrators of abuse, especially against children, it will help them to understand the consequences of their actions, and how perhaps once act, have completely changed the life of a child. This book is also important to parents and those who work with children, when we, as adults understands the risks that children, adolescents and any person who is not able to protect themselves are facing, we hopefully can be more vigilant of children, women and any possible

Middle class knowledge of norms and customs allows students with this background to better navigate the school system. Parents from this class and above also have social networks that prove to be more beneficial than networks based in lower classes. These connections may help students gain access to the right schools, activities, etc additionally, children from poorer families, who are often minorities, come from families that distrust institutions.
These programs established the need to train teachers adequately so that they could implement the correct approaches that would support pedagogical theories and establish the materials and resources necessary to succeed. Assessment and responsibilities also had to be implemented in order to determinate the right standards, not to mention they fall in and out of favor with the social anti-immigrant sentiments that fluctuate with time and change with society. Therefor court legislation and state responsibility has to provide monitoring and oversight, with the state holding the responsibility for the curriculum and implementation. Even after all of these accomplishments the video also addresses that many states and districts do not acknowledge the presence of ESOL students expecting the students to carry the burden of change and not the schools. Peter Roos also mentions in the video the role of the community and the necessity to train parents and the community to advocate, participate and monitor the schools and file complaints of necessary.

This explains that ways in which an individual is socialized can make them have a negative attitude towards a particular race, Therefore it is important for institutions at different learning levels come up with diverse strategies that will aid in educating students on the bad effects of racism. Racism victims not only need to be protected and acknowledged but their quality of life also needs to be improved.

This documentary also touched on the hardships these children and their families face individually, and how they each strived to overcome those adversities. The purpose of the documentary was to shed light on the harsher conditions young children have to face in order to get a rudimentary education, unlike their western counterparts.

Also, many reforms began to be radical in the eyes of many.
If all schools had corporal punishment, then the students of America would show better attitudes, have more common sense, and even do right by adults. Corporal punishment can teach the students of America how to do right amongst others and how not to do wrong amongst others. According to goodparent.org, “These studies offer evidence of spanking’s effectiveness in changing behavior problems”. Being that this study shows changings in behavior problems, then we could incorporate this punishment in schools to change behavior problems of students in schools across the country. When students do wrongs like cursing, being disobedient, not showing respect, or doing other things that are not liable in schools principals, teachers, or other staff members should have the right to spank the students of the school and more than likely these kids would not do wrong by adults anymore and from now on they would know the right things to do, or else the paddling would take

Klein ( 1976) postulates that everything we read affects the way we think, considerably, the texts children are exposed to have a big influence on their thoughts and attitudes. Therefore writers should consider excluding stereotypes such as gender and racial stereotypes, from texts for children because the presence of stereotypical views can cause problems throughout children’s development. According to Sutherland (1997) children’s literature has been used to improve language literacy and inventive thinking skills. He further goes on to say that it works as character development tool to shape behavior and attitudes.
Another step is to have a list of resources nearby to provide support for the student. A club or community center could help the student better assimilate and cope with the change differently than I can better they could better understand the student’s feelings. Also, an important step is to have an open mind and self-awareness. No one is perfect and mistakes are likely to happen; therefore, both parties needs to have an open mind and understand that I could take time to find the “happy medium” of the cultures. Also, understanding the bias and racial issues that could exist in the school is important because it helps put the student’s cultural issues with context (Arrendonado, 2001).
