A kind housemaid or unfair trial can break down biases and easily as a racist relative or hometown community can build them up. Schools in Sweden using this to their advantage to discourage gender-based prejudice provide a beacon of hope: prejudice can be changed. Whether it’s avoiding a majority Black neighborhood at night or degradingly uttering the word “women” as an insult, subtle prejudices still exist in our daily lives, yet are just the tip of the iceberg when considering the underlying problems of racism and sexism in our society. Understanding that prejudices can be changed by the events and people in our lives provides hope for a day when such issues are a thing of the

Throughout the article Marks, emphasizes that poor inner city kids have the ability to be successful but they do not want to use the resource they have available.

Developing people’s capabilities or merits is the most efficient way to extend general equality, as everyone would have an equal opportunity to compete in a true meritocracy; and because this system is relatively just, any inequality that emerges from this system is 5 justifiable, as any inequality would have naturally sifted through the system based on an individual’s natural merit (Mathewson). Social hierarchies within the United States are not solely based on wealth, as they are also based on skill and educational attainment; however, economic inequality has allowed wealthy citizens to have privileged access to excellent avenues of education, and thus greater avenues of socio-economic mobility (Mathewson). Therefore, economic inequality
School Uniforms Are The Way To Go School uniforms are essential towards a school’s success. There are many benefits to having uniforms, yet many would still argue that uniforms hinder students’ abilities to express themselves, but if uniforms are strictly enforced, students will be able to focus more in school, be less likely to indulge in gang violence, and help lower income families save money on clothes.

In my neighborhood, there’s a little bit of everything, in terms of race and ethnic groups; my neighbors are Hispanic, White, Indian, and Black. We tend to get to ourselves and I think that’s because of who we are and where we’re
The provision of education is often viewed as equitable and efficient. To be equitable, it must be represented as fair and impartial, as well as being efficient in comparison of effectiveness to the total input in a market system. Based on the principles presented in Cocktail Party Economics, the provision of public education can be analyzed as a negative connotation.

It would have been nice to hear why standardized testing was created in the first place and a brief blurb as to why it is still deemed important today. One of the group members said that he would have wished they had more time to go over the affects of education in the black community for all of those that then attend college. I too would have liked to know how those issues that begin in preschool now begin to factor in to some of the things that many black college students deal with today. Not just for
