Education is very important in the real world and it is still important to people that are in prison. In the movie Shawshank Redemption Andy Dufresne valued education greatly. He showed this in one way that caught my eye, when he taught the young guy English and math and helped him pass the test so he could get his GED. This correlates to some real world applications. Statistics show that inmates that take college classes and classes to achieve their GED are 33% less likely to return back to prison (Science Daily).
I decided to try because of my parents, sports, and most importantly my future. I knew that I was capable because of my past.

Through his narrative, Richard Rodríguez makes a convincing argument against the implementation of affirmative action, even as one who stood to benefit from the program. When he was very young, Richard Rodríguez immigrated to the United States with his family to live in a predominantly white-Anglo, middle class neighborhood in Sacramento, California. Rodríguez’s parents were poor, but what money they could scrape together they used to send their children to the local Roman Catholic elementary school, Sacred Heart. Rodríguez knew less than 50 words of English at the start of his attendance in school, leading him to be introverted and shy in class. He rarely spoke, and finally, after 6 months had passed with no improvement, the nuns from his school came to his home, asking his parents to speak English with their children around the house.
He is the one who introduces the concept of phoniness. It starts with Holden telling the readers that he was yet again being kicked out of another school, this time for failing four out of his five courses. Holden could easily pass, but he refuses to do the work. Pencey is a good school, but Holden can only focus on the phoniness of the school and the students. Pencey’s ad says that they have been “Molding boys into splendid, clear-thinking young men” (2).
Among the reasons for this problem is the issue of poverty, a very poor distribution of tax money for education, and some cultural conflicts. All of these problems are worse when the inner cities are examined. Sadly, the black community remains significantly poor, undereducated or uneducated, and unemployed. With our young men left to face these issues, they will begin to have a bleak outlook on education, thus leaving them to figure out how to survive in this society without an education. Research over the past 10 year has shown that the most effective way to reduce crime and recidivism is through education, and mainly literacy training as well as GED training (Henry 2003).
