The Brown vs. Board of Education case of 1954 laid the official foundation to the long construction of racial equality in public schools.

Parents must begin preparing children for school by speaking to them with more advanced intellect at an earlier age, in order to give the children a head start on a higher education. African Americans deserve equal opportunity to obtain a sufficient enough education just as all other races, except the blacks must work twice as hard to achieve the same amount of recognition. These efforts range from social issues, to racism within our justice system, and dwindle down to educational conflicts. In order to obtain racial equality for
