Malcolm X tried his best in school and tried to read and understand what he was reading. Malcolm had discouraging teachers.

I did not try that hard at that time but then I realized that I should be more smart and try harder and read and understand so I don't end up like Malcolm X. I keep looking forward and forward to passing all my classes. I want to be successful in school. My conclusion is that all three authors cared about education at the end and they did good in school and they should be the same as any other
