In order to make the dream of coming to America superior, the Europeans were convinced that coming to the New World would allow them to break away from England and begin a new and enriched life. In the letter, A Description of New England, John Smith writes that liberty is free in America, but in England it costs more. The brighter idea of liberty being free to them in America, rather than in Europe makes the Europeans believe that they will be able to start their own government and self-rule which interests them. To further convince the Europeans to come to America, they are told that the land in America is stunning and resourceful.

Yet it appears to have become a barrier itself, namely through the institution of structural poverty. In his description of what has equalized the poor and rich classes, Tocqueville cites the diffusion of education across the United States. Equal access to people regardless of their income was instrumental in allowing the poor yet intelligent youth gain equal footing in regards to the work force. However, for many students today, this equal footing is nothing but a dream.
During the 1970s and the 1980s the achievement gap, or the gap of test scores between minorities and whites, narrowed, and it was believed that we were finally getting to equality. After the 1990s, however, the gap began to widen again. Since then, there has been much debate about whether we are closing the gap, or if there is really any reason to worry about it. The reason why people are so interested in this debate is because it is noted that education is what leads to life chances and opportunities.

For example, “Atticus Finch can inspire us to be better people and better parents and the story shows that it is not impossible to raise your kids to be respectful and humble people. Those traits are painfully absent from so many of today’s families.” (TKAM still culturally relevant, 8) What’s being said is that basically many of the basic manners known 50 years ago are lost in today’s society.
