School Classes that arent the Classroom Being an ignorant all-way Private school girl I thought Schools were the key to everything that is the way to upward mobility for low-income children Students who were smart and worked hard could improve their situation and become doctors lawyers and CEOs Everyones heard some story about the poor boy studying and working non-stop as he supports his sick mother in the Bronx or rural Russia who then moves up in status through schooling and reaches a happy ending but that doesnt happen What the sociology of education has shown is that the Australian school system divides society on the basis of income and wealth The poorest students drop out first and the wealthiest last - not because the poorer students are stupid but because the school system discriminates against them In other words the school system does the opposite of what it says it does It creates a class system where society accepts this field of massive social inequality Low-income students give up school at more than twice the rate of other students Maybe they cant find the money for books and field trips Perhaps they have been reduced to silence because the school and its curriculum do not suit their life and future Have their self-esteem been so crushed by failure that they simply refuse to go to school Some children have been so badly traumatised by the system that their mentality cease to function only at the schoolroom Unfortunately students take the blame for their own failure and the school system blames them as well Theyre told that they are stupid or that theyre slow learners - but such culturally-biased assessments only show that the school does not know these children Students learn to feel stupid in school
