Write 6 pages with APA style on Race Inequality in Education. Inequalities are detrimental to relationships in society and do not promote equality in different aspects among people. This paper focuses on institutional inequalities, and specifically in the area of education, and offers recommendations on how this problem can be addressed.
Educational inequality based on race is a problem that is experienced in the United States, as well as other countries that are highly multicultural. The high levels at which this racial problem is experienced calls for urgent measures to ensure that it is put under control. The racial inequality in school systems is mainly perpetuated by the school practices that the schools adopt, including the mislabelling of students and academic tracking (Collins 2). There is different evidence that proves the existence of racial inequalities in the educational system. However, there are various measures that can be adopted in order to cease the practices that promote racial disparities in schools. If more research is conducted on this problem, including how this affects students’ performance adversely, and effective policies put in place to address this problem, the inequalities will lessen, even as more students experience academic achievement.
Education provides many opportunities for individuals. Individuals that have an education are, therefore, more privileged than those that do not get an education. Similarly, students in school might perform differently. as others will have better grades than others. On the other hand, some students might drop out of school. Putting all these aspects into perspective, it is important to note that although the personal efforts of an individual student may help them to succeed in their academics, there are different structural factors that equally contribute to the success of students in schools. Fitzgerald (218) considers these structural factors to include aspects of social class, gender, race, nationality, and sexuality. .
