However, when one doesn’t even know what to change from, it’s hard to move forward. The residential schools were incredibly destructive to their culture and even though the author doesn’t make this the focus of the novel it explains why Otter Lake is the way it is. Their lack of culture has led to a disconnect with the land, shown in the eagerness to build on it and how it’s seen as an administrative task rather than something of cultural significance. The lack of culture has also changed their relationship with each other. Virgil and many other kids are often left to raise themselves while their parents focus on their jobs.
This has been cemented into the brains of every school boy and girl from early on and yet still, it has become prevalent to relinquish ones desire to be educated so one may conform to the habits of the culture around them.

We need to take matters into our own hands and put cursive writing back into public schools before the rest of our world becomes a total wreck. Meaning that children will get so wrapped up into the technology world they won’t ever know what a piece of cursive writing is or even looks like. And many parents wouldn’t want that for their children. We need to put cursive handwriting back into public schools so students nationwide can learn how to read and write cursive to become successful, and responsible young adults. Students today would get a paper of some sort and they would have to sign their name, now most students would raise their hand and ask “what does this mean?” I know I did once.
Richard and many other kids can easily be affected by poverty There is no doubt Richard was affected by what other people say or think. This becomes evident when people thought of how poor he was.

I have worked under a few different administrators that were not genuine and always seemed to say exactly what you wanted to hear rather than telling the truth. This lack of authenticity eroded the system from the inside out and made it so that not one teacher sought out those administrators. We all felt the lack of follow through and the trust had vanished. Without being honest and sincere I feel that administrators lose the following of the staff and lose admiration from staff and students as well.
