Though it may not seem obvious, the school shows a distinct lack of care for its pupils, they have introduced new systems of learning, people who are not acquainted with the area are chosen to teach there, causing different, more obvious problems with the students. Learning can also be associated with a loss of innocence because ignorance and innocence go hand in hand: the less you know, the less likely you are to try something because you don’t even know of the certain thing, and you know things that make you less innocent in the first place. All in all, the story is based around racism and the Great depression and other such themes. The school represents many of these things, innocence, racism and depression. On the opposite side of the same coin, it could also represent many good things about this period of time, but it exuded these characteristics the most.
The ones / Nobody chooses at Thanksgiving”(21-23) The bad pies who are the ones that were baked by inexperienced bakers and poor ingredients. Underprivileged people are born from families with less support. These people might not live in a good neighborhood and go to a school with limited funding for education. Because of this, at a young age, kids would have to work many jobs to help support their families, and on top of that, work hard to get good grades to go to any college, even a community college. “That’s never the end of the story, of course.
In the school environment social classes are irrelevant because they are all presented with the same education that allows them to learn at the same pace. Gladwell comments that when the educational environments change, “virtually all of the advantages that wealthy students have over poor students are the result of differences in the way privileged kids learn while they are not in school (258)”. The wealthy students are able to indulge in extra curricular activities, books, programs that enable them to advance their knowledge. This opportunity and support is rarely presented to the lower-class families, because parents have a harder time paying for programs and activities, providing educational support, as well as providing time while they are
So my mom taught me to not be negative or rude to those who had that one barbie everyone wanted so bad. But when we did have money, I would get rewarded with a toy because I would be doing good in school or behaved well at home. However when it came to my older siblings, they weren’t gifted with the same opportunities like me. My brother and sister were high school drop outs, so they really didn’t set the right example for me. Their actions led to me setting high standards for myself because everyone in my family thought I would be a highschool drop out like my siblings.
However, all it really does is dishearten members of minority groups. An example of that disheartening is the lack of quality education for poverty areas. Another example is when test questions are inadvertently worded so that majority group members will understand them easier/better. United States schools are “insensitive to the distinctive culture of a minority population” (A/T). This is an example of institutionalized discrimination because it isn’t just single discriminatory acts it is an entire system (the school system) working against a minority group to discourage

Children in these homes grow up to be accustomed to domestic violence, child abuse, neglect, and out-of-wedlock births. These families are also at an economic disadvantage since they often cannot acquire higher paying jobs, either due to underprivileged public education, or because they must support their family around the house. This creates a cycle of poverty that is often too hard to overcome, so some people result to gangs and crime, in hopes of supporting themselves and their families. Once a person has chosen a life of gangs and crime, they may have to sustain a tough appearance to other gangs and criminals that live within their communities. Since the communities are subjugated by blacks or other people of color, the results are the large percentage of black-on-black crimes.
Having no understanding of who they are and why they've been unfortunate enough to be where they are. The negative portrayals of people who look like them in the media distorts the opinions of themselves, their friends and family. From an early age black children suffer from low self-esteem and struggle with their identity as it relates to the world. As they grow up they don't see an improvement in their lifestyle, they understand the ghetto to be home. Many are not given the opportunity to understand life outside of their home.
Morrison was trying to point out that little black girls do not exist in the perfect world of the white middle class, which was typically illustrated in literature for pupils. According to Rosenberg, young black girls, as Morrison herself, had a problem to find their identity because of the lack of portraits of Afro-American characters and their real life. School children were getting a glimpse of a distant Anglo-Saxon’s middle class life that was so perfect and hostile towards them at the same time. It seems that this basic-school reader could symbolize the clash of the perception of the Afro-American girls with the cold distant world of white people. Klotman explored the three versions of the “Dick and Jane” in her analysis of “The bluest Eye”: The first is clearly that of the aliened white world (represented by the Fisher family) which impinges upon the lives of the black children and their families while at the same time excluding them.
Children who grow up with permissive parents tend to struggle academically and physically. They often have low self-esteem or self-trust and could gain a lot of sadness. They may build more behavioral problems as they will likely not appreciate authority and rules. Related to that, they are more inclined to doing illegal acts that could result to their being delinquents since they are not given proper
