Fremont High School is located in Los Angeles, California, “sprawled across a city block.” The school enrolls about 5,000 students every year but only 3,300 are in attendance every day. The students read at an elementary school level and are not provided the necessities to succeed. The school is lacking many resources, such as, classrooms, restrooms, and lunchrooms. The school lacks at least 15 restrooms that the law requires. The average class size is about 33 to 40 students per room in 220 classes. The teachers are worked to exhaustion and the students are treated like animals. Fremont High is lacking the basic needs for everyone there and all of the students know it. School is meant to be a place for students to feel comfortable and educated, not what Fremont High School is.

This main claim of this article is that the sexual legislative issues of women’s blues singers of the 1920s and relates it to African American women’s ' fiction around that same time frame. Carby also claims that great soul vocalists such as Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, and Ethel Waters had more insight to contest society led by men and uncover the disagreements of African American women’s ' experience than African American essayists. As Hazel V. Carby has illustrated, women blues artists were for the most part disregarded by the black middle classes, particularly women who saw blues as a declaration of the most corrupted or regressive parts of African-American life. With the National Association of Colored Women and the Black Women movement,
By the 1920s, African Americans began to migrate to northern cities such as Chicago, New York for the search of a better opportunity. This was known as the “Jazz Age” or “The Roaring Twenties.”
When we think about superheroes we think about Superman, Batman, Spiderman, or Iron Man. We never think about a grown man in his underpants flying around the city. I’m describing Captain Underpants; a principal who is hypnotized by two kids and fights crime. Captain Underpants is a comical children’s book series, which was very popular in every book fair. This book series has been around for 18 years, and it has finally been banned. Although many people argue that it shouldn’t be banned, I think the explicit and immature content in this book should be banned from the children’s literature.
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is written as a mockery of American ideals, and emphasizes materialism, sexual immorality, and selfishness. Though it appears at first glance to be a love story about Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan, The Great Gatsby is actually a satirical take on American culture, especially in the 1920s. In the 1920s, known as the “Roaring Twenties”, America’s economy was booming, jazz was immensely popular, and alcohol had been banned. Organized crime ran rampant, and Americans seemed to lose their moral values.
“You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food,” said Chef Paul Prudhomme. During my first few months in Philadelphia, the food of this place approved Chef’s comment as far as I knew. I did not acquire the use of forks to eat pretzels, hoagies, and the famous Philadelphia cheesesteaks. As a busy student not being able to venture out much to explore and absorb Philadelphia’s history I had knowledge of a very few obvious food choices that surrounded everyday life in Center City. The amount of carbohydrates in pretzels and Philadelphia cheesesteaks scared me coming from Austin, Texas, one of the healthy-eating cities in the nation. However, I found them extremely delicious and satisfying to my taste, which only started
The Iowa State Fair is the most influential events throughout the state of Iowa during the month of August. This is a place where one can go to experience shows, art, food, and see livestock from all around the country. Most people however, go to this fair simply to have fun. On my visit to the Iowa State Fair in the previous summer, tasting all of the different foods, quality of the rides and the positive attitude from the carnival workers highly encourages me to come back year after year.

“Hundreds of items were invented in the 20th century, changing the way the world operated. Many of these inventions seem benign now, while others served as precursors to advanced models” (Richard). The book To Kill a Mockingbird was written in the mid-1930s and it was during this era that many useful items were invented. During this time there was a rapid increase of innovations that ranged anywhere from the game of monopoly to a wooden bathing suit, or something more efficient such as LDS medicine. What were some important inventions of the 1920-1940s and how did they
George Jenkins High School is known for their dreadful football team but mainly their revolting bathrooms. High School presents many struggles for teenagers. One of these struggles is prominent in the lives of all who appreciates going to the bathroom with cockroach’s crawling up your leg and urine all over the floor. Nobody in high school seems to understand simple etiquette and manners when using a bathroom. The ideals are often ignored and overlooked for the sake of getting to class on time. Some things have to give for this erratic behavior. The ways to put an end to the repulsive bathrooms are to close down all of the bathrooms, take away hygiene resources, and get the choice room delinquents to clean up the bathroom, and to have a dean’s monitor the bathrooms.
SWOSU intramural football team, “Happy Campers”, competed in the NIRSA Regional Championship in Lincoln, Nebraska this past weekend.
Many white women worked in Freedom Schools established by SNCC, because of the danger they would have faced working in the field. Freedom schools were originally established to teach African American high school students lessons in history and other subjects, because the education they received from public schools was not very good. They originally had a curriculum, but it was hard to follow. SNCC volunteers were not teachers and did not know about every topic. One staff member said to the volunteers, “You’ll meet on someone’s lawn under a tree. You’ll tear up the curriculum and teach what you know.” Eventually, Freedom Schools babysat black children, taught adults how to read and filled the needs of the students. Sandra Adickes, a black
