Education Inequality is a major issue in today’s world as many Mexican and African American children do not have the same schooling opportunities in their earlier years as white children do for the most part. This includes school supplies and what they are taught at certain points in their career. Doing this can give the kids who have a better education a much larger advantage in life later on. In an article written by US and World Report, the author reportedly stated, "Conversely, a strong education can act as a bejeweled key that opens the gate through every other aspect of equality, whether political, economical, racial, judicial, etc. based." This author is making a strong case by showing how education leads to the development of higher knowledge and thinking of someone in so many different aspects. He then goes on to say that this all begins with your educations as a child. Obviously, it is shown that where you go to school, and the kinds of people around you really determine your placement in life. This supports the claim because if you are surrounded by many African Americans in a school, you will be learning the same things as them at the same pace. If the black community is not achieving as high standards and white children, then those white children are going to have a better shot at doing something good with their life and have many more opportunities than those children who cannot keep up with the smarter kids. Adding on to this, In another article by the US and World Report, the author said," Education may be the key to solving broader American inequality, but we have to solve educational inequality first. There is no progress being made, encouraging examples to emulate, that an early start is critical." This is a great example of showing how solving this problem can help develop other inequality problems too. Educational inequality is the most important because if all races have some of the same opportunities it will build up from there and eventually these problems will be solved.
