Introduction

RuthAnn Milbert 05/07/2010 Lynne Lerych English 101 Essay Draft #2 Reducing Racism In American High Schools Racism has been prevalent in the United States since the first European explorers arrived at our shores. Law reforms since that time have continuously changed almost all of society; however, "public schooling is the context in which desegregation has attained its most salient position as a national issue" (Foner and Garraty).

(SIRS) Although Dowling-Sendor's issue dealt with a visual symbol the same principal can be applied to audible issues. Would the request of students speaking in a certain way violate their freedom of speech? I strongly believe that the less diverse a nation is the more stable. The quote, "Unite We Stand, Divided We Fall" seems to apply itself quite well in this situation. We as individuals can remain unique, but unless we find more common ground, starting at young ages such as high school, we are doomed to another civil war. ...read more.
