Additionally social science has played a peculiar role in the problem of race according to Bobo.

According to the New Rightâs beliefs, the role of education is to instil drive, initiative and enterprise. The New Right believe this will come from competition between schools and colleges, motivating teachers to improve standards and providing parents and students with a choice of schools and colleges. The New Right see them as being similar to functionalists and they believe in the freedom of the individual with less central control. They believe in free market principles within education with a desire to reduce public spending, they also believe that education as an important part in the process of socialisation. They believe that education can help socialise children through religious assemblies, the National Curriculum and citizenship lessons.
They believe in having diversity and difference in heritage within our nation. The Obama administration is dedicated in securing our boarders to reduce the amount of drugs coming in and out of our nation. Businesses should be responsible without hiring undocumented workers. Illegal immigrants need to acknowledge that they have broken the law, pay taxes, and learn the English language. They believe these steps are necessary for them to become a citizen.
The concept of race helped explain why some people could be denied the rights and freedoms that others took for granted” (“Race: The Power of an Illusion”). In order to make a community a more equitable environment, we need to exhaust a myriad of support with forums and activities addressing structural racism, educate the public about confusions and misconceptions about race, promote public awareness of the origins and persistence of social inequalities, initiate participation by sponsoring community discussions around race and equality, initiate student workshops and seminars along with church member support and finally, have follow-up programs to consistently reiterate the
Dominique Becker chose to focus her paper on the Progressive Era and the treatment of immigrants during this time. When groups were formed and I was to conduct a peer review on Dominique’s paper, there were a couple of questions I wanted to ask. I ask Dominique what she wanted me to get out of her paper as a whole, and what types of things did she want me to focus on while reviewing her paper. Dominique explained she wanted the reader to gain a better understanding of the harsh life these immigrant workers were going through. She also explained that while I was conducting my peer review to make sure the topic was consistent.
THE SAVAGE INEQUALITIES OF PUBLIC EDUCATION IN NEW YORK The author Jonathan Kozol explained this story very well in detail. The main points the author wanted to explain was he wanted to show how the education system was not fair how it operated, and that money played one biggest issues affecting children’s education. He wanted show the readers what some of the struggles that children who attended unprivileged schools went through education wise. He wanted the board of education know how unfair the system was and made it aware. I believe that Kozol tried to find reasons why was this happening to the schools and at times during the story he tried to show that race was playing a part of the schools stability money and educationally wise.
HW6: Hirsch summary In the reading “Creating a Curriculum for the American People” by E.D Hirsch, Jr. emphases on his belief that America’s biggest educational problems can be separated in to three categories. First is our low academic achievement relative to other nations; second is our lack of equality of educational opportunity; third our failure to perpetuate a strong sense of loyalty to the national community and its civic institutions. In the excerpt, he lays out his case that a shared base of common knowledge is essential not just reading and comprehension but the functioning of democracy itself. Hirsch describes how the anti-curriculum movement, the dominant school of thought in education became “tragically and unintentionally” an anti-equality movement. A lack of knowledge, both civic and wide-ranging, is the most significant deficit in most American students’ education.
He was stating that everybody worked hard to provide for their family. Therefore it is only fair that everyone be treated equally. No one should be given more privileges than the other. Roosevelt got his point across when he suggested that everyone, as a whole, should forget about how bad things are. Of course you would remember it, but try not to relive it.
Moore’s argument about the existence of oppressive mechanism seems to constitute a recommendation for change. The author encourages young individuals to look beyond their immediate surroundings and appreciate the racial and gender differences that contribute to modern American society.

I think the educational system should be prepared and ready to clean house. The educational level that these defiant individualist have is slim to none. If the immigrants that birthed gangs out centuries ago could not find a plan of action because of educational level then why is that the same problem years later when society focuses on the advancement
