There are various ways to deal with the racial dispute at classroom. Stereotypes play an important role in prejudice. The tendency to think about others in terms of their membership in various groups ar categories appears to be a key factor in the occurance and persistance of prejudicial behaviour. It is vital for a teacher to have a proper understanding and knowledge regarding the children and their behaviour in order to shape them as good citizens of the society. The main cause of racial discrimination towards a child in a classroom is may be due to the fact that the worlds of those children are distinct and they rarely intersect.
These two factors are also the sources of learning about gender itself. Teachers provide curricular materials that contain gender stereotypic behavior, and peers presents gender stereotypic attitudes and behavior. These stereotypes and prejudice will in turn be students’ guide to their own preferences and behaviors. According to National Center for Transgender Equality (n.d.), students who do not conform to the gender norms are often subjected to discrimination and bullying by their own mentors or fellow students. This event causes the students to feel limited in terms of their gender expression; thus, destroying their own self-esteem and isolating themselves from social

It would prevent readers from understanding the word’s prior applications. When presented in Huck Finn, the presence of it allows students to be educated about the its negative connotation, both historically and in the present. One typical complaint by students and teachers is that the use of the word ‘nigger’ causes discomfort. Francine Prose of the New York Times claims this discomfort by learners can be transformed into a constructive lesson about tolerance through conversation. She writes, “The understandable discomfort the word ‘nigger’ causes students and teachers is part of a conversation; part of the point of reading that book in school is to have that conversation.” The original version of Huck Finn forces readers to encounter attitudes and behavior that would not be acceptable today, which could lead to a more constructive learning environment

It shows the disadvantages that many students face in public schools, such as being placed in lower level classes where the students are considered notoriously rude and ignorant by the school administrators. The movie works to disprove the idea of the students being lazy by showing the hard work they put into their notebook and the passion they show when Miss Gruwell teaches them with an attitude that shows she believes they are just as capable of any other students. “Freedom Writers” addresses the problem of the structure of the education system, showing the viewers how the system makes it more likely for certain students to be left behind or left out of academic success.

Carla Amurao extracted, “statistics reflect that these policies.. target students of color and those with a history of abuse, neglect, poverty or learning disabilities..” (Facts Sheet: How Bad Is the School-to-pipeline - pbs.org). Amurao concludes that racial is a situation, that when students are suspended they are put in a negative environment where they catch bad influence causing defamatory to their learning environment. This shows the statistics of the pipeline of color skins being most likely to end up in an unstable environment. In the meantime, “Teachers have been reported to give lower grades and use harsher disciplinary practices with students of color..” (Journal of Adolescent research). Regardless of teachers, the students will continue to be in a different state-of-mind if they are people of colored.
In a school environment, prejudice is always a call for the worse. When we say prejudice it is most commonly known to be relating to race. In my experiences at school, there were cases of prejudice based on academic performance. Whenever a teacher would assign a group assignment students with higher averages would join together leaving those with lower averages to group with each other. This usually negatively affects many friendships since one may care more about their marks than their friends.

Fried is a great tool for identifying challenges in school systems and planning school reform. This book explains in great depth the problems faced by students and educators in schools today and ends with a call to action for solving these problems.
