Young children had to do chores including weaving clothes, feeding animals, harvesting and growing crops, cleaning, making food, making candles or dye which could be used later on, they had little free time because children would work before and after school.

Children got lashed for punishments, their lashes were at least 2-10 lashes, these lashes were for the simplest actions the children did such as telling lies, or even touching others. This supports my claim, that it was not a land of opportunity for children because, with the amount of lashes they got it made it not a land of opportunity because they got punished for minor things. For children it was not a land of opportunity because the amount of lashes they recived, and the amount of chores they did giving them little free time.
School fees were only 3d (pence) per child every month, which was hardly enough money to buy supplies such as ink, paper and books for the children at that time. Robert Owen was still determined to give these children an education, even though he could have used all his money on these children’s education. He was not interested in owning a successful business, or earn a lot of money, he just wanted to give the children what he thought was right. An essay that Robert Owen wrote about New Lanark called ‘A New View of Society, stated that ‘the children were taught without expense to their parents. They may therefore be taught and well-trained before they engage in any regular employment.’ This school fee did not affect the children and their family’s financial circumstances as the average wage for a child under 18, was 1 shilling and 6 pence (18 pence) per week.
I am no exception. History, for example, focuses on the male point of view. There are little to no important female historical figures that are mentioned in text books, and depending on the teacher, the curriculum. My parents, who are both divorced were also treated differently. Both were low on money in the beginning, but my father was considered a hardworking man as he struggled to find a job with a suitable pay, while my mother was told to "get it together" while she job hunted.
The majority of the players are there because of the government that has made it impossible for people to obtain the necessities needed to survive virtually. Nevertheless, the players voluntarily participate and voluntarily take the exams to qualify for the games. For instance, the people in Co-Op did not have a lot of jobs which resulted in participating on the Network’s Games. Another major point is that “The Running Man” criticizes the american educational system and standardized testing. In the novel, Ben is required to take several exams like the Verbal Comprehension, Visual Logic, and Math Diagnostic.
Ch. 9 – Education in the South Although the South depended on agriculture, there were a some people educated. The South didn’t support education for a variety of reasons.

Although civil literacy was important in America during the Civil Rights Movement, today it is in steep decline based on many factors. In most schools, classes focusing on civics or similar themes are virtually nonexistent. The reading states, "fewer and fewer schools require civic courses". Most social studies classes barely touch on the subject. Since the younger generation of America is the one that most needs to be educated in civics, this could be threatening because they can 't run a country while simultaneously knowing nothing about it.
Usually, most kids spend about 6.5-7 hours of school from monday-friday, not only are students in school for many hours but for 5 days and homework just adds more hours at home.

While the Cunninghams are poor and prideful, the Ewells are completely shameless. Young Walter Cunningham is very poor but tries his best to get dressed and look nice in school.
