Make sure you select a theme that directly links to issues concerning urban education to analyze. Your paper must be at least 6 to 8 pages long, double spaced, in APA format and should analyze the components listed below. Support your arguments (in-text citations of references) using at least three references (at least one reference must be new, i.e. not used in your group paper – no Wikipedia is allowed).

Running Head: WON’T BACK DOWN

Student’s name
Instructor’s name




Central theme
The education received by the poor, urban students in the public schools is not
sufficient enough to enhance competition from their counterparts, middle and upper-income
students. From the movie "won't back down" and the documentary "Children in American
schools" poverty is a broad aspect that displays the disparities/ inequalities in the education
given to students from suburban communities, the poorer rural communities, and the inner
Won't Back Down is a movie about a failing primary school, displaying the American
public education experiencing a meltdown and producing high school graduates who are less
literate as compared to those in the same grade school some years back. The movie embraces
the idea of parents taking control of their children's schools by rewarding the gifted teachers,
condemn the lazy and overpaid teachers and generally reorganize the administration. Jamie
Fitzpatrick is a single mom who is an auto-dealer secretary during the day and a night shift
bartender has Malia a third grader who is dyslexic as a daughter. Malia attends a classroom
of a teacher who is an underperformer but yet the most overpaid teacher as presented by her
colleagues. Jamie shows her determination in wanting to get Malia changed to a different
classroom with an inspired teacher, Nona, but her efforts are shuttered by an opposing force
from the principal, Bill. Jamie's determination leads her to convince Nona to start a school
with her which she agrees. Won't back down tries to relate poverty to education in that the
two characters are determined to ensure reformation by improving public schools as it is a
system that is broken and must be fixed.
Children in American schools is a documentary that tries to examine the disparity
between public schools in the impoverished and wealthy districts of the state of Ohio. It



begins by displaying the structure of the schools in the poorer districts which are presented to
have collapsed ceilings, walls that are crumbling and water damaged structures contrasting
them to the wealthier district public schools that have pristine cafeterias, huge pools, and their
trimmed landscape. Jonathan Kozol a writer of the book ‘Savage inequalities' where this
documentary is based on explains the problems facing the underfunded schools including;
perpetual leaks, outmoded use of burning furnaces, inadequate computers, holes in ceilings
and buildings that lack bathrooms. In the wealthier schools they tend to have all that the
underfunded schools lack and more including; computers and robotic la...
