Therefore, they act out and hurt their classmates. Because they aren’t engaged in their everyday text, any little thing that is bothering them makes them become fed up leading them to act out towards another classmate. In addition, in the essay “Still Separate, Still Unequal,” a working class students believes that her race isn’t worth anything. Therefore damaging her emotionally because she believes that if everyone that is a part of her race were to disappear, nobody would care, they would simply be relieved that they are gone. They believe to be worthless.
Louis alone are certainly alarming, I am most dismayed by the responses of the children from Morris High. It is evident that the children at Morris High do not fully understand the implications of racial inequality, nor do they regard the immense suffering of children in schools like those in East St. Louis. However, if I were a young white girl from a high class family attending Morris high, I too might have the same outlook. I likely would have been taught to acknowledge the inequalities faced by the minority, but would not have been taught the privileges I have experience for being white. If I were suddenly to start attending East St. Louis schools, however, the inequalities faced by my new peers would become much more apparent.
In any occasion, they were raped or maybe hurt in places like school. They also have been abandoned by their parents. For these reasons, they hate the world. Then, they carry a great frustation in the life. I remeber the attack of september 11 in United States.
This is just an examples of the book The Catcher in the Rye being banned or censored. Even people getting fired from their job for assigning their student to read them. There are just so many different cases of teachers getting fired, words needing to be censored, and parents complaining. Clearly, parents or adults do not like other reading The Catcher in the Rye. “Banned from English classes at the Freeport High School in De Funiak Springs, Fla. (1985) because it is "unacceptable" and "obscene.
The students in my school are not free from oppression because the community they live in tells them that they do not need a high school diploma to be successful and that college is definitely out of reach. In schools, Tatum (2013) expresses that the impact of racism begins at an early age and “we are exposed to misinformation about people different from ourselves” (p. 65). This information is often engrained in student’s heads and some students of color internalize these differences and begin to believe it to be true. It is my belief that this false sense of self is often created not only in society but also in schools and students begin to perform the way they are expected to
While I appreciated the diversity, I did not appreciate all of the drug dealing, fighting, and bullying that took place in the halls. It was hard to avoid getting mixed up with the wrong crowd and I watched a lot of my middle school classmates spiral out of control. On the plus side, it was in middle school that I met my two oldest and dearest friends.
This would cause the students to become very suspicious—always questioning the legitimacy of different ideas. That is to say, children who were brought up in residential schools usually had a large range of trust issues, and consequently, lacked compassion for others. Finally, a disturbing quantity of students—both male and female—were raped by nuns and priests. You could only imagine the kind of impact that could have on an individual. Some students were considered lucky, if it only happened once, for many children were raped constantly, and some were even impregnated by their abuser.
First off, the governor closed all the schools in Little Rock, so no one could attend. Not only were all the students greatly affected, but the families of the Little Rock Nine had the more major punishments. Many of them were quickly fired from their jobs to reduce more conflicts with business. Once the schools were finally opened back up, each of the nine students were separated throughout the different schools, which caused even more awareness that schools needed to become desegregated. The impact that the Little Rock Nine had on today is the fact schools are all officially desegregated.
Public schools across the nation are wasting their money on equipment and better facilities, but they are forgetting what matters the most which is each students education. In the Documentary Stupid in America, they said that a lot of schools spend a lot of money a professional pools, and well equipped gyms, but all of the extra money sent to the public schools did not help improve test scores (Stupid in America). They also stated that small charters schools do not have gyms, pools, even, buildings, but they are still able to outperform student attending other public educations (Stupid in America. Schools are not doing enough not maximize their funds on just the children 's education and not hobbies or sports. There are many public schools that
According to Wayne Camara and Amy Schmidt in “Group Differences in Standardized Testing and Social Stratification”, This is a big reason minority groups tend to do worse. The minority students who come from high socio economic households tend to do decently well on standardized testing, however, they are far from being the majority and often aren’t discussed at all when these topics come up. Unfortunately, though, as we have seen there is a still a lag of minority groups compared to other groups even when the household status is the same. This is speculated to be due to the fact that they are often lacking in academic preparation due to inner-city schools and lack of rigorous courses (Camara and Schmidt, 1999). They often come from households with low expectations and family support, which are two incredibly huge factors when it comes to academically succeeding.
