Presentation: Article From Chicago Sun Times – Article Example
Article Presentation When we think about education, we understand it as a universal concept. Nobody would want to be stolen of their privilege to geteducated .What do you think when it comes to equal educational rights? We all want to get good education and brighten up our futures isn’t it? Does anyone disagree with this point? But when I read the article written by Speilman titled “Alderman warns of’re-segregation of top public high schools”, I had to think twice about the concept of equal education. This article talks about an elite Chicago school where education for black student is compromised for the benefit of White students. I think this is an absurd situation where white enrollment took over a surge while black pupils suffered a backlash when it came to their right to get admitted in an elite school.
The article showcases that race is an issue in America when it comes to education. Don’t you think it is unfair to sideline black students when it comes to an important issue like education? Do you agree if I say that this racial segregation in America is taking a toll on the future of black students? According to (Spielman 2014) “There was concern about whether a system that used race in admissions could withstand scrutiny”. I would like to ask fellow people whether race need to be an issue when it comes to admission system in America. Are we living in 19th century still? What is your suggestion to eradicate such issues? Why not admission authorities of Chicago public high schools take minority enrollment as a crucial issue? Hopefully America will set higher standards when it comes to public high school admission in future.
