The most evident piece of irony that shows in the novel is the fact that Alice is the Psychology Professor at Harvard and as she teaches her students the study of the human mind, she is losing hers.

She was really struggling with her teacher because she said that he was going way to fast for her and that everything he said just flew over her head.

As soon as I found out, I asked her if she wanted me to try and help her out.
In fact, the odds are against you.” -robert greene I picked this quote because teachers are not going to going to hold you hand throughout high school. Their just their just their to teach the students who want to make it in life and some do not care if you pass or not. My grades have changed since I first started high school they were really good at first but then I got side tracked thinking I would pull up my grades last minute. I was horribly wrong and realized that it wasn’t as easy as middle school.

Jennifer Delahunty Britz’s article, “To All the Girls I’ve Rejected”, begins by explaining how her daughter was waitlisted at a college she was qualified to attend. Following this, Britz elucidates reasoning behind this, informing that colleges show bias towards male applicants. It soon becomes clear that many declined and waitlisted female applicants possess more capability than accepted males. In order to prevent this, admission committees should exercise a gender-blind admittance procedure. Britz, dean of admissions at Kenyon College argues that: “few of us…were as talented…at age 17 as this young woman.
Rose presents a case study about a distressed young woman named Andrea, who wants to go into premed, but her introductory chemistry course at college is really testing her fundamental educational base (Rose, 1989, p.190). Rose (1989) states, “Andrea could memorize facts and formulas but not use them to solve problems and her inability was representative of a whole class of difficulties experienced by freshmen. What young people come to define as intellectual competence what it means to know things and use them is shaped by their schooling” (p.190). I think that Andrea’s struggles with quantitative reasoning in the sciences and students who are struggling with their writing stem from the same source that Rose points out, their intellectual competence

For example, Jolly dropped out of high school at a young age because of her giving birth to Jeremy and Jilly. She had never got the chance to go back because she had to work to be able to pay the bills. There was no time to go to school, which Jolly originally laughed at because the thought of going back to school was incredulous to her and it was ridiculous. But then not necessarily willingly Jolly ends up in the Moms Up Program at LaVaughn 's high school due to LaVaughn.
It also lacked a history of why this started to happen in schools around the nation. Blank and Berg cited Noel Epstein 's quote from her book Who’s in Charge Here? Which said “While policymaking elites have focused for decades on academic issues, polls have shown the public to be more concerned about inadequate parental involvement…”(Blank and Berg). This goes to show that politicians believe it is bad schooling while the public believe it is bad parenting. And so the idea of sharing responsibility for the child was created in an attempt to have the parents, the school, and the community to all help in raising the child.
