A. Reappraising the Importance of Class in Higher Education Entry and Persistence
Author: John Field and Natalie Morgan- Klien
B. John Field and Natalie Morgan- Kilen explain about the social class of our economy. The social class is surrounded to categorize individuals of their worth of income and in doing so this reflects in the higher level of education. Social class depicts if a child will receive a great education. Fields and Klien demonstrate through children’s experiences of their reflection of their social class, such as those who live within inner cities find it much of a struggle to attend a great college to better their education. Individuals from the inner cities complain that they are not receiving enough academic sources to enhance their education to prepare themselves for college. Verses those who live in suburban area are able to received well academic resources that enhance their education. Social class reflects the lives of student’s education. C. This is a useful source because it presents the experiences of student’s lives from inner cities and suburban living to explain how education is reflecting their lives in a matter of social class. This tie in with Kozol argument about social class being an antidote to the issues of segregation within schools.

This source is reliable because it presents the same ideology as Kozol claim about the school systems of America.

By reading this source it has increased my knowledge and opened my eyes to realize that social class is everything in America. Social class is also the reflection in the school systems and it is also the main reason why schools continue to be segregated.

C. This is a useful source because the authors present segregation rising in charter schools. With this problem occurring throughout the state minority students are failing to be exposed to more white students in their classrooms. This source backs up Kozol claim with classes being too segregated and this is failing students the ability to be surrounded with different culture backgrounds. As the rise of segregation
