Savage Inequalities Reaction Paper Everyone has a specific image of school and all that school implies I have always pictured a clean red brick building with fine trimmed green grass flowers lining the walk ways and lots of playground equipment Inside colorful pictures line the walls teachers smile as cheerful students line up to go to gym class laughter and learning are visible throughout the school However after reading Savage Inequalities by Jonathan Kozol I realize how unrealistic my image of school and education is well at least for all children Sadly some children do not even have a faint glimmer of hope at having a quality education The American dream is one for the middle class white society But what becomes of the rest of Americas children My own experience with education has been on the whole very pleasant Opportunities were numerous for me My elementary years are some of my happiest The building was old but well maintained A lovely red brick building with an American flag flying over the entrance The school was kept clean The teachers for the most part were caring concerned creative and competent Colorful art work lined the walls of the halls and the classrooms I will never forget the beautiful cloth made mural of Peter and the wolf that lined the one hallway leading to the library I suppose that I was naive in thinking that all children shared a similar schooling experience or at least had that opportunity But after reading Savage Inequalities I realize how lucky I was and at the same time how sad and unfair that all children do not receive the same chances as others As a prospective teacher this book really opened my eyes I never imagined anyone certainly not myself having to teach in such terrible conditions I always took for granted that there would be enough textbooks for each student
