I love how the American Dream is explained in the reading. The American Dream is so important to me I believe all students should have an equitable education that helps them strive to succeed. It shouldn’t matter what their skin color or race is, because everyone is human, and has the same rights in this country. We all have feelings, and our own opinions. I strongly believe that all children should have the same amount of resources and opportunities when they’re young, because I do know that once they get older they can decide whether they want to further their education or not. I do understand that sometimes students who come from different countries only speaking one language could be hard for teachers to give them the same attention they give others. In that case sometimes it is not the teachers’ fault sometimes it is the schools fault by not having enough multicultural teachers to help students who are also multicultural. Society does play a part in this as well by automatically judging someone for their appearance or their culture. I think that we have gotten used to the way society pictures “different” people. By different I mean not white. From my experience I have not seen an African American teacher.
