Educational system reflect social inequalities. And my analysis include sociological conflict theory like a key. And economical factor that affect educational, professional and social progression. Social conflict theory sees social life as a competition and focuses on the distribution of resources, power, and inequality. Social conflict theory is a macro-oriented paradigm in sociology that views society as an arena of inequality that generates conflict and social change. Key elements in this perspective are that society is structured in ways to benefit a few at the expense of the majority, and factors such as race, class, and age are linked to social inequality. To a social conflict theorist, it is all about dominant group
When people hear the word inequality they think of inequality as a circumstance just involving race, things like being unequal with another person cause of your skin color or cause of your traditions. However, inequality covers many other broad factors one factor other than race being income inequality. In “Inequality Has Been Going on Forever…but That Doesn’t Mean It’s Inevitable.” (The New York Times, 02.05.14), David Leonhardt points out that Income inequality has come to be extremely high, the middle class is shrinking while the rich become richer. This attitude is encouraged by various factors: society, taxation, and how much time has passed. The inequality is said to last for decades.
Social class groups individual persons into class hierarchy which is determined by person’s income, education, wealth, social connection, and job profession. Social class classifies people into spectrum of class such as lower class, lower middle class, middle class, upper middle class, and upper class. Depending on which class an individual falls in affects earnings, education, respect, success, status, family life, health, job occupation, and social connection. An individual that lies in higher part of class spectrum gets more opportunities and has better lives than an individual that lies in lower part of class spectrum that does not get opportunities and struggles in lives.

I believe that Canada should place its priorities in fighting poverty on itself, because until we can pull ourselves out of debt, we cannot fully support other countries in doing so. Similar to Abraham Mazlow’s hierarchy of needs, we cannot do greater things in life, such as achieve self-actualization (equating that with helping others), until we complete our own needs, such as basic physiological needs and security. To be more specific, I believe Canada should place its priorities in lifting our youth, especially First Nations, out of poverty.
In the late 1940’s Berlin became the dividing line between Communism and Capitalism. This beleaguered city was to be the front line of the Cold War. In 1948 The city, divided into four sectors, one of which was occupied by the Soviet Union, was engaged in a life or death struggle for survival. The Berlin Airlift was not simply a struggle for the life of one city. The city was a prize in the game of chess between the west and the Soviet Union. The media of the day utilized rhetoric and to influence the emotions and allegiances of the people who read them, focusing more on the threat of Communism than on the plight of Germans themselves.
A young man drifting through life without knowing where he belongs ,this is the true story of Christopher McCandless. In 1996 Jon Krakauer wrote Into the Wild a true story of a man who traveled across the Western United States seeking adventure. I decided to read this book because of how unbelievable the story's plot was within still claiming of being a true story. Other survival books I have read, such as The Road by Cormac McCarthy also steered me towards reading this book as also being a story about surviving the unbearable. This is the first book I have read by Jon Krakauer, but i am looking forward to reading more of his books in the future.
In 2005, Werner Herzog produced the incredibly thought-provoking documentary, Grizzly Man, which allows the audience to see the world through the eyes of Timothy Treadwell, a man who wholeheartedly believed that his purpose in life was to cohabitate with, and “protect” grizzly bears from the dangers of the outside world. For thirteen consecutive summers, he managed to live in harmony with nature on a desolate Alaskan peninsula while filming himself defying the public’s perception that living amongst some of the most dangerous animals in the world was impossible. Towards the end of Treadwell’s thirteenth expedition in 2003, however, his luck ultimately ran out. Treadwell and his girlfriend, Amie Huguenard, were brutally eaten alive by a voracious grizzly bear that Treadwell had ironically filmed earlier that day. Herzog reveals this catastrophe to the audience in the opening scenes of the documentary. By presenting the climax initially, Herzog manages to immediately grasp the audience’s attention.

The term "Sociological Imagination" was introduced by C. Wright Mills in 1959. The definition of Sociological imagination from our textbook is “the ability to understand how your own past relates to that of other people, as well as to history in general and societal structures in particular”. In other words, Sociological Imagination is the ability to recognize that an individual's personal troubles are a product of public issues which aren’t always controlled by the individual. This concept can help to provide a better understanding about the current social problems our nation is facing. Sociological imagination helps an individual understand the society in which they live in by placing an individual away from reality and looking beyond the

“Ragnar Nuskre once said that a country is poor because it is poor.” (Nuskre) It is very hard to identify who is living in poverty or what makes a person poor, does it mean poor only in the sense of money but also in terms of basic necessities they receive for example clothing but we know this for certain that people who are discriminated against or disadvantage tend to be poor for example in India it is seen that people who belong to the Dalit community are poor.
