In “An Indian father's plea”, the child is embarrassed about his indian culture, and as a result, his father notices. The child now “refuses to sing his native songs”. The other childrens discrimination at school causes the child to not accept his own culture either. This turns the young, innocent child against his own culture which is unacceptable, but sadly a problem in today’s culture. In “Funny in Farsi” the child has to be escorted around by her mom which to her, “was enough to make me pretend not to know her”.
Durkheim describes anomie as a lack of social norms or rules that govern a person’s desires. If someone were to isolate themselves from society, they wouldn’t know what the typical desires should be, thus they would have endless wants. (Durkheim pg 5-7). Durkheim says, “No living being can be happy or even exist unless his needs are sufficiently proportioned to his means. In other words, if his needs require more than can be granted, or even merely something of a different sort, they will be under continual friction and con only function painfully,” (Durkheim pg 8).

Numerous crowd of people never realise that what they had wanted to be humorous had been an insult to a particular person or group of people. This may be triggered because of a mispronunciation or a person commenting on what other people have said. One of the many examples that Bauer uses in Don’t call me Ishmael, is Barry Bagsley, Doug Savage and Danny Wallace. These three boys cause chaos around the school, especially in Ishmael’s class. When Ishmael was mentioned for the first time by Mr Brownhill, his homegroup
She is different, and knows more, but the kids do not believe her, as to them, it may feel as if they were bowing down to an inferior, which would hurt their pride and dignity. One way
Quarta also has the same type of problem. Since she has only two arms and two legs, people call her a freak. People never really seen somebody like that, probably their first thought is What a Freak!!! In school people are even afraid to touch Auggie. The school had started a thing called The Plague.
Al Capone was influenced by gang affiliated members and he was uneducated to choose better. He left school because he felt they were too strict on him. He did not take well to stern authority. Leaving school so early caused him to feel lost. He was accepted by gangsters.
Willem felt like his classmates saw him differently, and that his classmates felt betrayed. Willem also felt kind of sad because nobody thought of him for his achievements anymore, however everyone saw him for “that smart black kid”.

Then the directors of the school destroy his work of art because it was not kid friendly, even though they were the ones to put it into the school curriculum. I think the school’s solution to the problem was not good. Like what it says in paragraph 3 in I am real where it says, “I want you to know, too, that my publisher and I have done absolutely nothing to exploit the disgusting news from Drake.” Even when the school burned the book he said that he did not exploit them like he mentions in this quote. I think he knew his book was not for children, but what I think he really is mad about is his reputation.
1.) Why do you think the superintendent was opposed to Ethnic Studies classes? a.) Tom Horne wants to ban ethnic studies in schools, but his reasoning is because he doesn’t want to have the students separated. He says they are rude, tribal, and they seclude themselves because of these courses.
