If at any point they failed, they would see this as a big mistake and give up and have a lack of motivation. It can also be argued that working class children do not get the support of their parents, this is because many of the parents believe that they survived without an education, so believe that there children can do the same. Working class families can also lack in support in terms of if the child fails a particular exam, they would not give them positive feed back on how they could improve they would improve. Whereas, it can be argued that higher class families have more motivation and the parents also give the support to the children that is needed. This would have a positive influence on the child’s education as it would give them hope and not give them an opportunity of giving up.
One way young people face discrimination because of biology , young people are often channelled into stereotypical roles .This is usually presented through the family. For example parents may believe younger people are unable to work because they are still dependant on them. Young people don’t usually have a specific role within the family and as a consequence often do not hold any status .This can mean they are often discriminated in family decisions as they often will not have a say. This however can be argued as somewhat gender specific. Boys will often be given more responsibility and status as parents often want him to grow up and be the ‘ man of the house’ where as it can be said that girls are treated as dependant on parents and as if they are vulnerable and therefore need protection .So it’s not really true that all young people face this kind of just discriminated but instead that it is more gender specific.
Payne stated that students should learn the “hidden rules” of the middle class from their educators so that they have another set of rules to use if they choose to do so. Impoverished students, compared to students of middle or upper class, often have a lack of proper funding, thus, a lack of appropriate resources to use in their education. Due to this, they are often unprepared for school, not having the money to purchase books and other educational tools. Both authors realize this, but argue that the responsibility lies on different shoulders. Payne states that impoverished students face inequality at school, insinuating that the school should be responsible for helping to provide for these students so that they can have a better education.
It is useful for highlighting why, in the working class, those who cannot achieve in education, they then therefore suffer from status frustration and in this process turn to other people who also cannot achieve in this institution. Thus, explaining why deviance subcultures exist. This theory of status frustration is said to focus too much on utilitarian crime which is committed for material gain, but what it does not say much about is the explanation for why people commit non-utilitarian crimes like vandalism and assault. Cohen realised this and backed up this explanation by talking about alternative status hierarchy. When working class boys find that they cannot perform well in mainstream education, they look at the values of not only the education system, but the values in modern society and turn them upside down, by valuing the opposite.
It is very important because if we do not understand our past we cannot address issues the world faces now properly. Why is racism and discrimination still a problem? Because people have been raised from birth with certain ignorant and racial thoughts and stereotypes ground into them. Unfortunately these values and thoughts about racial differences are passed down from generation to generation in a continuous cycle unless something changes. But how do we break such a mold?
Cultural deprivation theorists would blame this on the lack of parental guidence and encouragment to succeed in education. This could of been developed from the results of an experiment A famous experiment was one carried out by Willis Douglas. He claimed that parental interest was the most important factor; he claimed that middle class parents had higher expectations than working class parents and they attatched higher values. Along with providing more support for their children. This was seen to increase
The education reform did seek to expand democratic ideal but not up to its full potential. William G. McGuffey supported the ideal that all people deserve to get their own education and become more independent thinkers. It was very hard for poor people to afford going to school when the cost to attend school was so high. The poor had to work on getting food on the table at that time not worried on giving their children a public education. In that time education was very limited to everybody but those who were rich.
Many problems related to literacy remain unsolved. Illiteracy is widely spread in certain areas of the country and its population should decrease instead of increasing by educating the people. Illiteracy is a social issue which a government must prioritize in order to have a political stability. Imagine if our government is run by an illiterate people. Are they capable of making decisions for the country?
Ethnic conflict has lasting effects for a country’s economy. Money dedicated to purchase arms and equipment takes away from building proper government infrastructure. Less money goes to education, health care, and building facilities. When education is affected, it results in more people becoming un-skilled workers. For those who did receive an education, an ethnic conflict could force them to migrate to different regions in the world, resulting in a brain drain for the area infected with an ethnic conflict.
this will rise tensions and hostilities between both people. Some immigrants do not have a skillful job in order to assess host countries. This will be problematic for immigrates themselves, as they will not have a high salary. therefore, immigrates should be educated or well worker in order to gain much money. The solutions of immigrants in the UK: immigrants should be careful about their rights while they work in other country by knowing the works' prices.
