White, schools in the United States are unfunded in the minority areas mostly due to the students being poor and the lack of resources for the schooling fundings. Not just that Rich schools are able to receive more through taxes, where poor schools receive less. Receiving money is not only distributed because of poor areas, but it is distributed because the money presented is mostly from based on the race and the income of the family. The money distributed to schools are not given because a certain school has potential to give a better education, but the distribution occurs based on a parent’s income and the race, but not only that, the area the school is located at determines whether the money will help more of the rich or the poor. The disposition of fundings occurring in much bias way possible, because the establishment of a stigma that poor children do not have a chance to transform their lives, this establishes that the rich children are much of a better investment towards the funding.The disportion of the funding generates a unequal education for all children.
“Poverty in schools typically does not have the resources to help, but the high school students are frankly to have high expectations” (Dan Rather Reports). In this documentary, Southern states, such as Detroit, Michigan, has the lowest test scores in consideration of not having the right acknowledgement due to poverty, and the color of their skins. In this condition, the bias of education discriminates people of color which conclude that the education is only in profit with the knowledge students. “The tendency to deemphasize or exclude race as a consideration… takes racial neutrality is the ideal for both discourses..” (The Importance of History - database). Generally speaking, Eileen Carlton Parsons and Kea Turner, stated this to exemplify that inequity in education has made an impact on people of color’s environment and poverty circumstances.
Within this discrimination, they are basically say that one kind is more likely to do one thing then another. There is evidence that“ ...even deep-seated stereotypes and unconscious biases can be eroded through both education and exposure to minorities who don’t fit common stereotypes...they can be contained when people are held accountable for their decisions. “(Fact Sheet). Racial profiling dehumanizes societies and is a bias act made by authorities. Using Racial profiling creates tension, especially when people are treated differently because of the way they look.
He says “The individual predictors of low achievement are well documented… With fewer family resources, their college ambitions are constrained (Johnson, In Progress)” (Rothstein 2). These problems are ones that plague primarily lower class families causing them to raise children with lesser educations resulting in a vicious cycle of inequality. This disadvantage is one that inhibits the quality of the civics education resulting in students failing to learn how to be prepared to participate in the democratic society. Students are also segregated based on their race with a homogenous mixture of either; african americans or white students attending the school. Predominantly black schools come as a
Although the term stereotype was brought into English in the 20th century, now it is widely used everywhere. Generally stereotypes are simplified images or thoughts of a certain kind of person or thing. Usually a person who has stereotypes characterizes and then categorizes people by their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or physical appearances. Stereotypes have a negative impact on people who are engaging it. The short story “Cathedral” by Raymond Carver along with “Flight Patterns” by Sherman Alexie show those negative impacts of stereotypes that not only affect the victims of stereotyping but also change the characters’ personality negatively.
Although there are seemingly multiple advantage of zero tolerance policies in schools, there are many other disadvantages against the use of ZT policies in school , One of the main disadvantages of zero-tolerance policy is the fact that it targets students with disabilities. A number of studies found that the rate of school suspension was relatively high among students with disabilities (Edmonds-Cady & Hock, 2008; Morgan, Salomon, Plotkin, & Cohen, 2014). The same applies to minorities such as people with color as several studies found that African Americans are expelled from schools at higher rate than their white peers (Skiba 2001). Another disadvantage is the disciplinary actions resulting from applying zero-tolerance policy such as suspension and expulsion affects school climate and cause the school ratings to drop. Furthermore, in such conditions, long periods of time are spent on disciplinary matters (Bickel & Qualls, 1980; Wu et al., 1982).
The idea of segregating racial minorities into crowded residential areas is a reality, which influences lower socioeconomic standings and limits equality to health. Institutionalized racism serves to seemingly brand and constrain upward movements of success in society. Many of the schools, including junior high and high school, located in minority filled communities are limited in their educational merit and do not instill and prepare for higher education and advanced opportunities in employment (Williams & Collins, 2001). Residentially segregated schools are said to fall short in areas of teacher quality and educational resources (Williams & Collins, 2001). The schools themselves have less funds per student and are surrounded in high neighborhood
Uniforms also make it difficult for kids to express themselves. That is also against the First Amendment because they’re restricting kids from expressing themselves. More private schools require uniforms than public schools. More public schools are starting to require students to wear uniforms because of all of the controversy over dress codes. Private schools have good test scores but, that could be because students there get more one on one time with teachers.
Minorities are underrepresented in the field of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and there are factors that contribute to this phenomenon. (Lancaster & Xu, 2017). One contributing factor to the underrepresentation of minorities in STEM is the achievement gap between minorities and whites. Unfortunately, many studies affirm that educators have low academic expectations for students of color (Olszewski-Kubilius, 2003). Thereby, students of color complete fewer advanced courses and less rigorous curriculum than their white counterparts (2003), and these advanced courses, specifically in mathematics, are required to enter into the STEM curricula at post-secondary institutions (Diemer, Marchand, McKellar, & Malanchuk, 2016).
Education for minority students has continued to be secretly separate and unequal. Currently now in this generation two-third of minority students still attend schools that are mainly minority, most of them located in cities, and funded well below those in the suburban districts. The U.S educational system is one of the most irregular in the world, and students routinely receive dramatically different learning options based on their social status. (Darling-Hammond 1) When it comes to employment, the use of affirmative action is much different than the education expectation. Majority of today situation that deals with discrimination when it comes to employment concern not only race but gender as well.
