10). In chapter six of The Skin That We Speak, Asa Hilliard explains why it is hard to separate the historically oppressed status of African American children and the educational assessments used to measure their language abilities. Hillard also explains how teaching and learning are a direct link between shared language between teacher and student and the environment they are in. Hilliard also acknowledges that “African American children are not achieving at optimal levels in the schools of the nation” (Delpit, L., & Dowdy, K., 2002, p.91).
a. Foster parents can have an impact on the lives of a foster child by giving them a safe place to stay where they can feel loved and cared for. Foster parents can also provide the love and support that these children need especially if they came from an abused or neglected home. According to (Hasenecz, 2009) there have been several shocking stories about children being abused and neglected while in foster care or even worse reports of social workers who knew of the abuse and neglect and failed to report it or do anything about
The lack of African American studies in the society has denied students in Public Schools in North Carolina a chance to appreciate the need for acknowledging black history.

“It is possible that interracial friendships are characterized by more conflict, especially for Black and Latino youth, because of different cultural attitudes about conflict within social relationships,” (McGill R, Way N, Hughes D, 2012, p. 732). Cultures are all different and each student does not know what each culture believes and practices. As a future teacher I plan on making my students more aware of the other cultures in the state and even in the local community. When I started my education courses I was asked to guess how many different languages are spoken in public school in Texas and the amount was huge. I
There are many different ways that you can help students that are dealing with homelessness. John Heegard,a veteran teacher said that “The way I look at it, my job is to build relationships, get to know my kids. I have to be honest, open, and treat them like young adults, which is what they are. Valencia and I already had a relationship, so the trust level was at a place where she could trust me.” (Holgersson, 2010).
As an early childhood educator, I must say, that poverty is a serious problem and every childhood educator needs to be aware of this, in order to demonstrate compassion toward children and their families. For instance, it is important that EC understand the socioeconomic status of the children and families that they serve. Consequently, research and knowledge about poverty would allow EC to understand the children better, such as their individual needs. However, knowing how to assist children and their families, based on the resources makes a difference. As an early childhood educator, children of poverty can benefit from learning through accommodations.
English-language learners (ELLs) with special needs belong to a minority group and require specific direction for educators on how to help these students in the school context and how to help to improve their educational outcomes. This is one of the most important topics in the field of education in the USA. The main issue of the teachers is to decrease the achievement gap between ELLs and their peers. Though, the educational needs of ELLs are diverse and rather complicated. English language learners face many obstacles due to their cultural and linguistic diversity.
Although both cultures hold high aspirations for their children, they adopt very different approaches to parent involvement. “African-American parents believed strongly in home and school-based involvement and attempted to intervene inside their children 's schools. While social class within the African-American community seemed to influence this pattern, African Americans were far more likely to seek school-based involvement” (Diamond, Wang, & Gomez, 2006) Every culture develops set patterns of child rearing practices and that what is perceived to be good parenting in one culture may be regarded as maladaptive in another culture. In both the Haitian culture as well as the African American culture this was not the case.

In James W. Loewen’s “The Land of Opportunity,” he states that social class affects the way children are raised. He discusses the inequality in today’s society and how the textbooks in high school do not give any social class information. The students in today’s time are not taught everything they should be taught. He states that your family’s wealth is what makes up your future. Loewen discusses that people with more money can study for the SATs more productively and get a better score than someone who has less money.
In Chapter 10 of Unequal Childhoods, Lareau’s case study on the Driver family highlights the influence of social class position on perspective, mainly on how it affects approach to educational resources. Admittedly, she mentions that working-class and poor parents are equally eager as their middle-class counterparts to ensure their children’s success in school. Nonetheless, she reveals a distinction between the working-class/poor approach to education and the middle-class approach - the fear of doing “the wrong thing” in school related matters (Lareau, 2011; p. 198).
