Its intent was to become part of the cultural mainstream. The Civil Rights Movement brought to light the apparent concerns of discrimination, intimidation and inequality.

My Philosophy on Education - All human societies, past and present, have had an interest in education; and many have claimed that teaching is the second oldest profession. While not all societies channel sufficient resources into support for educational activities and institutions, all at the very least acknowledge their centrality; and for good reasons. Teaching, in my opinion is the first profession period. Teaching will always and forever be used until the end of time.

With such powerful statements like "the educational foundations of our society are presently being eroded by a rising tide of mediocrity that threatens our very future as a Nation and a people" and "If an unfriendly foreign power had attempted to impose on America the mediocre educational performance that exists today, we might well have viewed it as an act of war.”, the report sent off a firestorm of reform efforts at the local, state, and federal levels....   [tags: Education]

Rejecting the Myth of Colorblindness in Education - Colorblindness is a defect in the perception of colors, caused by a deficiency in specialized cells in the retina that are sensitive to different colors. The term is often used today during political discourse, often by members of some factions of liberalism, when claiming that one’s race should be irrelevant to any decision making process. It is a form of moral posturing; that one should see an individual as simply an individual, but not as part of any larger group or culture. As if this philosophy will enable us to bridge any gaps between races, this thought attempts to focus on how we are all the same, rather than how we differ....   [tags: Education]

Exploring the Impact of Education on Civilization - Does education really have any noticeable impact on the evolution of society. We have had some amazing thinkers in our times, but it can be disheartening when looking around at society and considering that civilization as a whole may only be as good as the least educated individual. But this surely can't be, there must be evidence of education making some kind of difference. To further examine this, the words of Robert Frost are considered, "Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence." So, the uneducated would do just that as a reaction to, say, texts that people read during the process of education, and those that have already been educated would, hopefully, express an understanding that would otherwise be inexplicable....   [tags: Education]

It would stand to reason that to live up to this decree, the child’s way of thinking, and quite possibly life, changes in the process of gaining said education. This is especially true of a black student attending a predominantly white school.
