Education is the act or process of imparting or acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally of preparing oneself or others intellectually for mature life. In each essay, all three authors ward against the dangers with the education system of their era. Whether it be diversity, segregation or the goals of the system itself the authors believe changes need to be made, as education systems form the future leaders of our society. Through their text the authors believe they must solve the faults within the education systems, to conform society to what they believe is morally and ethically correct.
Civil Rights and advancing of racial equality has been a major issue for many, many years and seems to still be today. There are periods of time when the intensity is at a low and periods of time when it seems to be very volatile. Sound our focus be on economic opportunities, as outlined by Booker T. Washington, or for addressing the disfranchisement of African Americans that Charles W. Chesnutt described. A broad educational background, permitting vocational adaptability and flexibility, seems more imperative but then one could argue that you cannot obtain that education without the representation and protection of our civil rights. Can a great education change things.
Education is the backbone to society. A society that is uneducated cannot think rationally. The education of youth guarantees our future. It is the foundation and the building block which ensures each generation will succeed when they reach adulthood. Success as a student is influenced by both internal and external forces. Internal forces, such as mental and physical health, along with external forces such as the length of the school year and day, and parental involvement will have a major impact on a student’s success in education.
Malcolm X once said “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepared for it today.” In the western world education plays a vital role in shaping our future; it determines if we will survive or fail in the world we created for ourselves. Our world is constantly changing and it requires a society that is well versed in understanding the problems deriving from cultural differences and tolerance of one another’s beliefs and perceptions. With the power of education we are able to deal with the problems of economic, government, religion and culture differences.
The combined effects of inequality and structural racism indicators at risk of SGA birth income were examined and found that the structural racism, assessed against racial inequalities in education, employment, and prison was strongly associated with the birth of SGA when It occurred in combination with high income inequality.

Education is the most important tool one can use to change societies. An average person tries hundreds experiment in order to become successful in his life. Well a person learn new things when they get experience from others. No one on this planet born with experiment or talent maybe some. A person needs to evolve as life moves on. Every day, in our life we learn new things, from school, friends and by ourselves. Take an example of me, my transformative educational experience had thought me skills that I can use for my rest of my life career.

A few things the article focused on were the definition of health disparities, the social disadvantages, and the political side. According to Healthy people2010, health disparities are “differences that occur by gender, race or ethnicity, education or income, disability, living in rural localities or sexual orientation”. Yes, I agree with that statement, but I think that race or ethnicity is the main one, that has lead to housing, education, and income inequalities. Blacks and Latinos have always been seen as inferior because racial discrimination, just like the article says, is rooted in our history. There is clear evidence that shows “less wealth, lower income, lower education attainment, and under-representation in positions of high occupational rank, and financial and political power among Blacks as a group compared with Whites”. Everyone has the right to equal medical care, education, protection, etc., yet this is not what is seen. Health is such an important part of one’s life and defines their “capability to function normally in society”. The people who are socially disadvantaged, also have to face inequalities with health care, which widen the gap. This is an obvious fact when you look at the statistics, but the government continues to ignore it. The government has the power to do so much about this issue; they
This past summer I spent a week at Dirigo Girls State, and while there I had the opportunity to meet many girls with very diverse backgrounds.

While those speeches mostly pertained to the importance of our generation equalizing women’s rights in America, I realized their words carried deeper and broader meanings.
