Why High Schools Graduates are Unable to Read There are several reasons why some high school graduates are unable to read. One reason is the students themselves do not have support from family members to realize how important reading and writing can help them thrive in life. The students also play sports too much to focus on any type of education. They don’t make time to for school work and so they struggle when it is time to take tests of learn to read.

Many Native American are known for being poor, Junior is one of them. The thought of missing a meal, not because you want to but because you have to shows the poverty that Junior and his family faced.

Welty said, “Neither of my parents had come from homes that could afford to buy many books, but though it must have been something of a strain on his salary, as the youngest officer in a young insurance company, my father was all the while carefully selecting and ordering away for what he and Mother though we children should grow up with.”(Welty, 391) I remember my father giving me his old Hardy Boys books when I was about eight years old. His words are still in my head,“These were my favorite books as a kid and I want you to enjoy them as I did when I was seven. These books kept me out of trouble,” he laughed. At first I was not really into the Hardy Boys, but since my father loved them I wanted to enjoy them like he did. “My father loved books, and since I loved my father with an aching devotion, I decided to love books as well.”(Alexie, 397) Parents want their children to succeed in life and they know without literacy the world would be a tough place.

The still get pocket money from their parents and thus have neither an idea about hard work nor about investing money wisely, which leads me to the following aspect:
The poverty was a result of her father’s lack of income. Her father, Bronson Alcott was a transcendentalist who was sure that his utopian community, Fruitlands would succeed. Like many of her fathers failed projects, Fruitlands failed as well. After Louisa’s fathers constant failures, she realized that her father would not be capable to support her and her family. Due to her fathers idealistic ways, she grew up at a young age, and took on jobs as a servant, educator, and a seamstress.
At first Richard is close to his family, but once he gets older he does not have a very good relationship with them and distances himself from them. Richard just thinks that his parents don’t understand him very well. Everyone in his family is always making fun of him for reading so much. School experience is a very big factor in the teenage life of both Jamal and Richard. Richard is Mexican and Jamal is African American, so this makes both of them a minority.
More than anyone, a boy needs his father to approve of him and teach him how to be a man. Well, his father did not show him the love he required growing up. In all of Paul’s efforts to please his father, he was ignored and inadequate to his father’s expectations. In fact, his father praised a young man that worked as a clerk and insisted that Paul ought to be more like that gentleman. His father refused to give Paul money and argued that he has a job, so he can pay his own expenses.
During his childhood, friends and teachers even his parents accuses him of making too much tics and noises at school. No one believes that he has a rare disease.

Martin’s relationship to his father is also a little tense; they don’t seem to get along that well. Martin has a long braid in the back and he says that this braid is what gets to the father. Even though he failed three classes and is a bit criminal. Martin and the father don’t know what to talk about either. Martins father work a lot, so I guess they never just talk, because there isn’t time to get to know each other.
