In the video “Separate and Unequal” we start to see how the past starts to remake its self. We see how some community schools are not decimating anymore, or that’s what they are trying to show. The issue that they see is that the school their kids are attending is having a huge issue of constant violence and their children not being able to get a proper education. The parents that are in the argument just want to make there own community and make it so that people of that specific community can only attend this very school.

I used to go to a private Armenian school and over there everything was much different from a public school. I attended both and noticed a great difference between them. I feel like I had more time to talk to teachers and interact with them at the private school.

There is also the fact of religion has a role on the way people live and the way they study based of there religion. Then there are the Conflict Theorist perspectives that say people that should be trained to do jobs that are required for the community. They also support the idea that all people need to work. Conflict theorists also think that they need to reproduce the idea of inequality for schools. They support the idea of tracking student process and making sure everything so that the elite students will be able to learn and do better while the ones who can’t just start working and helping with everything else. Then finally there is the interactionist perspective.
