watch Victor Rios’ TED Talk, Help for Kids the Education System Ignores write a response paper reflecting on how social stratifiers (in this case, race, and class) impact kids’ access to and achievement in education, and how that shapes their expectations and fulfillment in adult life.
After viewing Help for Kids the Education System Ignores, write a response paper that includes the following sections:
Introduction: One paragraph that introduces the reader to the central topic of the perspective addressed
Main Body: Outline and explain the main message, argument, or problem presented, and connect it to key ideas and concepts from the course content, readings, and Exploration page. Be sure to use in-text citations formatted in APA Style. See the Writing Guide posted in the Syllabus section for help. Use the conflict perspective to help you explain the impact of race and class inequality on student success and achievement in education. Be sure to consider how self-fulfilling prophecy plays a role in schools.
Compare/Contrast: Discuss how the educational experiences and messages described by the speaker are similar to or different from your own and/or your children’s educational experiences. What factors do you think affected your success? What about others’ successes? In this section, keep in mind the ways that educational systems tend to reproduce existing class structure and how education has changed with the rise of industrialism in the United States. In your description, include an example of a manifest function and differentiate it from a latent function.
Conclusion: Reflect on what you learned from this perspective. Specifically, discuss how the perspective may differ from your own perspective, how it brought to light something you had not thought about before, or why it challenged your thinking. Be sure to conclude by explaining why this perspective is important for understanding the connection between education and society.
The paper should be at least 3 pages (the title page and reference page do not count as part of the page requirement). This should include well-supported and well-written information addressing the criteria outlined in this assignment page.
Please include proper formatting throughout the paper. Use APA Style to format the title page, reference page, and citations. Use third-person language, double-spacing, a 12-point font, and one-inch margins. See the Writing Guide for writing help.
