Schools a long time. When the first major

Schools are the places where the children shape their personalities and behavior.A School is also a special place where small kids and even teenagers meet people from all different situations, backgrounds and all walks of life.A school is a place where kids get to determine their future and what they want to do in life.Kids will be thrown into a mix of people they don’t know and have to work together.This is good for them because it sets them up for the future when they have to deal with people from the real world. School integration is not a major problem in today’s time , but when it was first introduced it was a historic move in America. When integration was first introduced it was a major problem in America, this is because it was something different and out of the ordinary.As human beings, we do not like change that is a given but have you ever wondered why? Decisions imposed on people suddenly, with no time to get used to the idea or prepare for the consequences, are generally disliked by the major public. The idea of white parents having to send their children to school with “colored” kids was not an idea they were fond of.These parents were raised in an environment where there was essentially two different breeds of humans, whites and colored.They went to school everyday with white kids just like them.The reason of the resistance was the white parents saw no problems with the way schools were while the colored kids were trying to get the same opportunities the white kids had in schools. In order to solve problems people must realize if we all stick together and fight for a solution it can be completed.After a while integration was accepted but it came with resistance for a long time. When the first major predominantly white school reached out and wanted to enroll colored children and employers the idea was that they wanted to give everyone the same educational opportunities.It Only after a matter of time did white educators begin to discover that they had as much to learn as to teach. In today’s day and age, many of the major schools and universities even often course on the benefits of diversity in the school system. People enrolled in those classes because they wanted to see the benefits after so many years of integration of how useful it can be to interact with different people. Many traditionally white colleges and universities, prodded by the concerns of their students, began to recognize their failure to extend educational opportunities to black Americans in particular. They also became aware of the many judicial decisions pertaining to the lack of equal educational opportunity. The most important integration case was the 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education, which ultimately led to the integration of many public school systems.     Today, we know integration has a positive effect on almost every aspect of schooling that matters. We also know integration matters for all students. Both minorities and whites are disadvantaged by attending racially isolated schools, although in somewhat of drastic different ways. Predominantly minority schools as a whole had inadequate and unfair educational opportunities. First, these schools tend to serve mainly poor students. Due to poor situations at home and by the student’s friends and sometimes relatives these schools routinely had lower rates of achievement than students in mostly average income schools. This holds true regardless of a student’s race or socioeconomic status. More importantly, predominantly poor and minority schools find it extremely difficult to attract and retain high-quality teachers.Teachers had to go through schooling just as all the rest did and wanted the same opportunity to teach a group of kids but these weren’t happening in the lower income schooling areas.This was another reason the minority schools were in desperate need of integration it was publically know that these schools were failing because the mainly predominant white government saw no need to fund the minority schools as much as they did the white school, they saw the white schools having way more potential and more beneficial to put more money into, in turn the educators of the colored school obviously loved their jobs of teaching children (Or the wouldn’t be doing it ) but honestly I’m sure they went back and thought “What is the point in all of this) sure the teacher believed in the students but if no one in the workforce did or in the government these kids were being taught to pursue a dream that was so far out of reach it seemed until segregation was introduced. While I’m sure it was hard for the color kids to be thrown into a predominantly minority school they had a much better chance of getting a better education and that would open up their chance to further their education and have a future to work towards.Even with the what seemed like world breaking changes, many public schools continued to be highly segregated for nearly sixty years after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the principle of “separate but equal” education, but those shifts have also created opportunities to approach diversifying schools and classrooms in new ways.Money alone could not easily fix these challenges because the racial and socioeconomic characteristics of schools significantly influence where teachers decide to teach. In the absence of huge salary increases, which are beyond the capacity of nearly every needy district, teachers with options tend to choose schools in wealthier districts.The negative effects of unequal access to quality teachers and middle-income peers are compounded over time, producing drastically lower graduation rates in predominantly poor and minority schools.Of course, not all high-poverty, racially isolated schools are low in quality. A small but high-profile contingent of predominantly poor and minority schools deliver exceptional opportunities on a daily basis.(Black, Derek) I found this to be interesting for a number of reasons, instead of the underperforming schools being reevaluated for more funding or a new plan put into place these schools were more or less just forgotten about by the state and federal governments.These schools were underperforming for a number of reasons but the the main reason was the teachers were losing hope in what where they were doing.Funding was ultimately given to the predominately white schools for various reasons.While teachers and students shouldn’t have to worry if the school they were in would make it this ultimately led to a worry of “money matters” and it really did to keep the doors open.In 1954, the Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education “required the desegregation of schools across America” . The decision was a big step towards racial equality. Black students no longer had to feel inferior to white students because they couldn’t attend the same school. No longer did black students have to feel different in terms of the schooling they were getting.After a while students had a feeling of unity being apart of a group where the only thing that separated them was the ride home into different neighborhoods.Unfortunately school integration did not and will never end the problem of racism especially as much racial division as there is in this country.The problem arose where the colored and white kids were thrown into the mix and had to do their school work but they were not forced to like each other or to be friends with each other.Technically schools were now fully integrated at this time but this still created two or three groups in the school of different races. But throwing groups of kids together did them benefit whether they realized it or not because it taught them they have to work with people from all walks of life whether they wanted too or not.Without the integration of schools, it’s just going to black versus whites. Not to mention all of the other races. Adversity is good for bringing people together. Had there not been school integration, the students of different races would not have been in the same class. There would not have been an opportunity for the students to learn that they are not much different from each other. Only through school integration did they have the opportunity to learn to respect one another and become friends rather than enemies. Race can be set aside as long as people realize that they have the same goal and that they must work together. That one goal needs to be forgetting about race. Integration is better than no integration because even though black kids and white kids may not want to be together they might discover that they have some things in common and they could become friends. Having no school integration means they never have that chance to interact with new people and learn from each other.
