and later earned his Ph.D. in history from University of California, Santa Barbara in 1984. Schweikart has written over twenty books in his career including popular titles such as, “A Patriot’s History of the United States” and “48 Liberal Lies About American History.” This book analyzes seeming insignificant events and looks at the short and long-term effects on the United States of America. In this book, seven events are looked through in detail and their effects on American Government are explained. These events are

Lazarsfeld for 35 years and where he created the “focus group research method” that politicians and businesses now use every day and where later in his life he became University Professor (the University 's highest academic rank) in 1974. Merton retired from the University
Merton believed that the societies do not provide adequate means of achieving cultural goals. Taking the case of United States, to achieve the American Dream, the American society would need to provide access to education and employment. When the society do not do well enough individuals are faced with a gap between ‘what ought to be’ and ‘what is.’ Based on strain theory, Dr. Merton defined five types of deviance: • Conformity: When the person or group accepts cultural goals and the means of attaining them. • Innovation: This involves accepting the goals of a culture but the rejecting the traditional and/or legitimate means of attaining those goals. • Ritualism: the person or group reject cultural goals but accept the traditional and/or legitimate means to obtain cultural goals.
Later, he spent many years in Oregon where he taught at Lewis and Clark College, eventually being named Poet Laureate of Oregon in 1975. That makes sense to us; he wrote a lot—seriously. His archived journals show consecutive daily entries totaling around 20,000 pages (and you thought
But the censorship of free speech on college campuses doesn’t just harm students’ abilities to deal with differing opinions; it teaches college students that those differing opinions should be silenced. College students have been indoctrinated into believing that speech which offends them, hurts their feelings, or makes them feel “unsafe” is not protected by the First Amendment. And these students consider any viewpoint which substantially differs from their own as “unsafe”. When these students enter the real world they find that people

Students feel that its their right to prioritise activities they need. In some cases students argue that some universities do not allow them to attend internship, workshops and extracurricular activities, which will help them to develop their life skills. Students blame the professors as one of the reasons for not attending the classes, because students feel that professors are making the lectures very boring. In some case students say that professors themselves do not understand the subject and they merely give examples from the books, which is very boring. To students, sitting in such classes is very boring (Chaudhari, 2017).
This is defined as knowing infraction of a victim’s health and safety and conscious disregard of consequences by their acts or omissions. Many violators can avoid serious prosecution by lack of obvious deliberate indifference or union protections and victims do not reach valid relief. Furthermore, recent federal reversals of Title IX withdrew interpretations of sex discriminations to exclude sexual orientation and gender identity as grounds of expression. With these setbacks in place, many students fail to see proper prosecution of their violators and face heavy subjugation based solely on their identity. Current interpretations and actions in federal school environments is facing a regression rather than progression of student’s
He was born on the 4th of July 1910 and died 23rd February 2003, aged 92. He developed theories on deviance, the concepts of self-fulfilling prophecy, role model and manifest function. Merton studied sociology in Harvard University and earned his doctorate degree in 1936. He then taught in Harvard for a further two years. He started in Columbia University in 1941 where after more than 30 years he became the University’s highest rank, University Professor in 1974.
Levine claims that these children are looking up to gang members and drug dealers as a way of life, knowing that their are no educational requirements to fulfill these positions (20). These poor students are simply seeing school as a must do for the time being, and not seeing the the value of the education they could be receiving if they had a better role model to look up to. Similarly, Graff asserts that students are not connecting with Shakespeare or the French Revolution, these students do not value the information because it does not pertain to them; However, sports, fashion or dating interests these students and have values to them (245). Schools and colleges are not connecting the dots. The values they set into the education system no longer interest students.
