The videos required for this discussion each touch on
overlapping social problems. Although we will examine education, inequality,
and race, each of which can be defined as a social problem or major component
of larger social problems, the basis of our discussion is based on a simple
- Education is an effective tool in our efforts to
build a more equitable society.
- Therefore, equal educational opportunities must be
available to all citizens.
In the video, Affirmative Action vs. Cultural Diversity, Tom Brokaw asks:
“How do we remedy the historic mistreatment of deserving black Americans
without punishing deserving white Americans today?”
Our efforts to address the problems of racial inequality have been centered in
on one of our most important social institutions - education. While the schools
of this country are a local place to focus these efforts, can we fix one
problem without creating another?
As always, we want more than your opinions. This question overlaps several
chapters of our text, including an examination of education, race, and
inequality. As such, we may see references to several chapters. We should also
see evidence of additional research, properly cited, in support of positions
offered in our responses.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims
with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and
properly cite any references.
