His distorted perceptions of the American Dream ultimately ruined his life and the lives of his family. Sadly, Willy definitely failed as a father. He obviously favored his eldest son Biff over his youngest son Happy, and this constant neglect drove Happy to become more like his older brother as an adult in order to win his father’s approval. We can see this through his philandering behavior, something Biff was known for in high school, the golden years. Biff, on the other hand, had it worse because his father sold him lies about his importance in the business industry, which forced Biff to admire Willy and strive to be like him one day.
Poverty made his family and him suffer for not having enough money. Junior wished he was magical because his family and him barely had enough food to eat. What Junior meant by magical is he wished he could just change things with a snap of a finger. After Oscar died Junior wanted to blame his parents for Oscar’s death but he couldn’t. Junior couldn’t because him and his family have a history of being poor, and they can’t help it.
Then, there is the man who had to drop of out school to get a job and take care of his mother. In our society, we don’t think about the other reasons why people are in poverty or homeless. We look at them with disgust and don’t want to help them. We say it is their fault. Our society does not realize how hard these people really do work to survive, and it is still not enough.

The lack of equal quality education is producing a generational cycle of poverty in the country that is casting a gloomy burden on our schools and society for the future. Many individuals stay in poverty because they don't know there is a choice and have no one to teach them how to overcome it and become successful. Schools are the only place where students can learn the choices of other social classes. The chances of them overcoming the heavy obstacles that await them without the skills the need are very slim.
School budgets are being cut lower and lower year by year. For the past 6 years, after the recession, the funding for education has decreased tremendously. The new budgets are providing less and less per-pupil funding to kindergarten through 12th grade. At the same time, the nation wants graduates to excel in their technical and analytical skills, although the decrease in educational funds are contradicting and raising concern. The budget cuts in education systems delay the school district’s ability to deliver high- quality education to their students.
This paper will look at ways in which these causes can be combated and at the same time evaluated in regards to it’s positive and negative aspects. Education has long been a problem in society, because the lack of this essential tool of survival doesn’t allow for growth of any sort. It is a known fact that the risk of poverty usually decreases as people get more schooling. Poor education can be either a cause of poverty or an effect. Young people who drop out of school may be poor because they lack the required skills needed to get good jobs, therefore adding to a system that forces them to only be able to live in low-income, economically starving areas.
Willy Loman: Failure of a Man In Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, Willy Loman is an example of a failure as a good father. He did not discipline his sons well by not punishing them. He did not set a good example to his sons by not admitting his faults. He did not make his family his number one priority. Instead, it was his work, coming before his family, his friends, and even himself.
“Was it my fault?”(93), this is the question that plagues Willy throughout Arthur Miller’s play Death of a Salesman. Willy wonders what the value of his life has been, his family struggles to pay their bills and his sons are not getting ahead in their job fields. Willy wonders: has he been successful? Or has he not only failed in the business world, but in his family life as well? To the reader it is evident that Willy has not been successful in life.
Both of those did not come like he wanted them to. He did not have a good relationship with his sons or his wife. He was slowly drowning in debt because he could not make enough money from his job, yet he pretended like this wasn’t so. He acted like he had his life under control when in reality, it’s was falling apart. In the end, Willy’s strive for the American Dream, to have it all, is what
