She challenged her students to show their intelligence. She believed that they were victims of circumstance. Mike Rose found this inspiring. He goes on to say, “ If you get closer to their failure, you'll find knowledge that the assignment didn't tap, ineffective rules and strategies that have a logic of their own; you'll find clues, as well, to the complex ties between literacy an culture, to the tremendous difficulties our children face as they attempt to find their places in the American educational system.” When reading over this, I find that it is true, that if teachers took the time to find out why a student is failing, instead of just deeming them hopeless or incoherent, that they may find out that these students have much more potential than they originally thought. Not all students learn the same way, therefore, teachers need to try different ways to to teach the material.

She tells how NCLB is not effective for educating our children. Then, in the section “On Her Favorite Teacher” she gives a specific example of how noneffective today’s education system is by telling about her favorite teacher.

Jane Elliott was a third grade elementary school teacher. After Martin Luther King Jr.'s assignation, she came to the realization that she had to teach her students more then what what they talked about when covering discrimination. She wanted her class to truly get to feel what it was like to live in a world where you were told this type of person was better then the other so, she divided her class into children who have brown eyes and children who have blue eyes. On Day One, she told the blue-eyed children how they would Go to the playground first and none of the brown eyed people could play or talk to them. She also told them how much smarter they were then the brown eyed people, and how they had better manners.
This does not mean that parents have no rights to what happens to their child while they are at school but this allows school to guide student behaviors though discipline. This idea is called in loco parentis (pg. 378). This concept was once more important in schools than it is now but it has brought forth it idea that no matter the student, disabled or not, there needs to be a certain level of responsibility put on all students for their behaviors when they are at school. This would be a great chapter of the book for parents to read because it would help them to understand why the school is doing what it is doing.
When i started school i was acting up and never wanted to do any work or homework and my grandmother had to come to the school everyday. I never really cared about reading and writing because i wasn't really good at it, so i never really worked on reading and writing. My grandmother signed me up to a online program called Hooked on Phonics to help me read and write, but i never paid attention to it and skipped all the lesson because it was boring.

I felt like i didn't need to learn how to read and write because nobody told me or showed me how important reading and write and learn how to articulate.
