In William Deresiewicz’s essay, “The Disadvantages of n Elite Education”, Deresiewicz begins by developing a social scenario that he had with a plumber in his kitchen. Here he explores the first disadvantage of an elite education which he describes as being unable to talk with people who aren't like you, referring to those who didn't attend an Ivy League school. Supporting his statement, Deresiewicz goes on to explain that Elite schools strive to achieve a strong diversity, but only in ethnicity and race and not economic class. As an example, he uses Al Gore and John Kerry, both of whom went to Harvard and Yale respectively. Going along with terrible social ability with non Ivy League alumni, Deresiewicz also claims that his education taught him that those who didn’t attend Ivy League education are below him and not good enough to talk to, no matter their ethnicity, race, or class.

She is concerned about equality, human rights, peace and the right for education and knowledge in her country but also all over the world. She started running a blog about suppression of human rights, violent attacks by the Taliban and how the Taliban are against education for women in 2009. Many people were able to read it because it has been broadcasted on a web side of BBC. Freedom of speech is a quite difficult topic in Pakistan and soon she became a target for the Taliban. She was injured by the Taliban and had to get treatment in a British hospital. She had international speeches and has won many prizes for human rights and equality (won the Nobel peace prize in 2014). The speech on education she had back in summer 2013 was for the UN General Assembly and it went viral. What she wanted to achieve is simply that she lays down the brutal facts and people of great power like the UN Assembly follows with resolutions and permanent changes. Her speech was interesting and very good build up by her use of the three theories of argumentation, which I will analyse throughout this essay.
