Throughout history, we have explored and conquered new lands, stamping the American flag into the earth and claiming it as ours — even if the rightful owners disagree. These feats have enabled us to assert ourselves throughout the world, settling communities and influencing those around us. In doing so, our ancestors refined distinct societies, adapting to the terrain and operating accordingly. Our efforts were not invariably supported, however, and disputes arose among those who were indigenous to the lands we thought ours.
The Northern and Southern colonies in the seventeenth century had many differences and similarities. The differences go all the way back to the beginning as the United States was only separated into the Northern, middle and southern colonies. Each colony shared many differences mainly revolving around religion, politics, economics and social issues. The result of the way that they dealt with these issues in our country today. The Puritans established the Northern colonies and the southern colonies were ruled by The house of burgesses.
The first permanent settlements established by the English in the Americas. The first permanent settlements like the Chesapeake area colonies, the Carolinas, the Puritan New England settlements and the Mid-Atlantic colonies but better known as the northern, middle and southern colonies, all differed in politics, religion, economics and social issue. Although they all differed in the above, they all had one thing in common, they were religious. With different beliefs but religious.
San Antonio Independent School District v. Rodriguez case. Texas public primary and secondary schools rely on local property taxes for supplemental income. These schools are designed to establish a minimum education threshold at each school. The San Antonio District in the representation of families residing in poor districts challenged this funding scheme by arguing that students were disadvantaged because their schools lacked the property used by other districts, and academic programs receiving government funding should favor all students equally. Having already talked the facts of the San Antonio Independent School District v. Rodriguez, I would like to discuss how this has been another topic of much attention within the Department of Education of different districts.
I am conditioned by the region of the US I was raised in, the peers I surround myself with, and the education I receive. These three factors play a big role of my conditioning, along with many other small incidents. Every individual undergoes an altered conditioning, creating a different human.
Adams, W. Blumenfeld, C. Castaneda, H. Hackman, M. Peters, & X. Zuniga book “Readings in diversity and social justice” chapters 1-4 (2010) they discussed what identity is, how one’s identity is determined, inequalities, and social justice. The literature supports identity is shaped by individuals’ characteristics, family dynamics, historical factors, and social plus political contexts. Supporting the fact that a large part of our identity is dependent on who the world around us say you are. People are categorized by classes and there is always a group considered dominate (advantage) to the other subordinate/target (disadvantage).
Matsumoto et al. (2007), however, make a distinction between these two terms. They view adaptation as “the process of altering one’s behaviour to fit in with a changed environment or circumstances, or as a response to social pressure” , whereas adjustment is described as “the subjective experiences that are associated with and result from attempts at adaptation” (p.77). I have used the term adjustment as the overwhelming body of research in cross-cultural studies have preferred this term in their models and frameworks including Black et al., 1991, Aycan,
I cannot only begin to make many similarities to the previous wrongdoings we have discussed in the course towards the Native American people and traditions. But also link so much of this treatment to who we were as a country during this time period. This persona of America at the time and the persona that many outsiders associate with the United States today can be mutually had. As a
Bates focused on the primary and secondary systems and found there an emphasis on redistributive and on recognitive approaches to social justice in educational administration. There are diverse interpretations of the term social justice in the context of education. Frequently, social inclusion is also discussed in the education context when we discuss social justice. O‘Connor and Moodie, examined the concept of social inclusion‘ and its importance in relation to the higher education sector where social inclusion implies the inclusion of an individual, group or community in society in general and higher education in particular.(O‘Connor and Moodie,
History, by definition, is made from unchanging facts and events. Despite this, most history books teach the past differently. How can the same information be taught in a way so that the reader gains something different from each text? America Past and Present by Robert A. Divine and A Peoples History of the United States by Howard Zinn write about common events and ideas, however, they convey them in both different and similar ways. First contact between Spaniard and Indian is talked about in both books.
Most people would define wealth as the accumulation of some sort of precious possession(s), or more specifically, just plain money. However, like most concepts, wealth can be observed differently, or it may be completely foreign, in another cultural group. In the early colonization of the New World, two cultural groups, the Northeastern Indians and the English settlers, began to interact more frequently for various purposes such as the purchasing of land. How could two seemingly different societies be able to share a large stretch of land without any conflict? Well, they did not.
America’s education system today is in a state of disrepair. The children are either not being taught enough or taught unnecessary information excessively. We rely on two types of education institutions; charter and public schools. For those are more privileged financially, there are private schools available. Diane Ravitch wrote “The Myth of Charter Schools” to provoke the undermining idea that charter schools are far more superior than public schools.
