1.3. There are many elements within the school processes and school cultures that have changes within the last several years. A few could be the curriculum that is taught in the school and the expectations for the students. The expectations are still for the students to succeed but in a different manner and in a fast pace world.

2. Chapter 7: Curriculum and Pedagogy

2.1. I advocate with Social efficiency. I feel it is important to students to be able to socialize in today's society. In everyday life, we have to communicate with others on a variety of topics. For children to learn when that are young to socialize with others then as they become older it will be easier for them. This theory is a different kind of curriculum that was created to have more than one basic curriculum.

2.2. The two dominant traditions of teaching are selective tradition and contemporary tradition. Selective tradition is produced out of the political , economic conflicts , tension, and compromises that organize and disorganize a society. Contemporary tradition is the scholarship and activism has been based on exactly these insights.

3. Chapter 8: Equality of Opportunity

3.1. Class, race, and gender all have an impact on today's educational outcomes. These all play a role of what one can and cannot do within the school systems. Students still today rate others on their ability just by these three different categories. One must realize that everybody may not have the exact same thing or be the same color but need to realize we are all created the same even though we are all different.

3.2. The responses of the Coleman Study from 1982 states : " In this examination of effects on achievement, statistical controls on family background are introduced, in order to control on those background characteristics that are most related to achievement. The achievement differences between the private sector are reduced( more for other private schools than for Catholic Schools) but differences remain."

4. Chapter 9: Educational Inequality

4.1. Two types of cultural differences include: Working class and nonwhite students, and white middle-class students.

4.1.1. Working class and nonwhite students also known as the African Americans may go to school with different cultural dispositions and lack of skills and attitudes. Depending on how one is raised depends how they will preform in school and society.The demand in multicultural curriculum in school becomes necessary.

4.1.2. The white middle-class students have different background cultures as well and may have a huge contribute to society. These students are the majority that speaks english which will help the minority that does not. Everyone in society plays a huge role.

4.2. School Centered explanations suggest that school processes are central to understanding unequal educational performances. School financing falls in this category of school centered explanations. Depending on where the school is located and the size of community depends on the income the school receives. Next , could be school research. Depending on the income they receive depends on the amount of research invested in the school. Another one could be the curriculum that is set within the school districts. The curriculum is a school centered project although it can be modified for individual students. The last one is gender which is school centered. The schools can sometimes pick which gender can do certain task or even if they have an all boys school or just all girls.

5. Chapter 10: Educational Reform and School Improvement

5.1. Two school-based reforms is include School-to-Work Programs and Privatization.

5.1.1. School-to-Work Programs allowed students to be able to gather knowledge that would benefit them in a job. The law provided seed money to states and local partnerships of business, labor, government, education, and community organizations to help schools develop this ability. This opportunities gives students the necessary skills for what ever career they pursue.

5.1.2. Privatization is when education companies increasingly becomes involved in public education in a variety of ways. For example when the Edison Company took over management of failing schools and districts. When business take over s=certain parts of the school and or districts to make them more beneficial for everybody.

5.2. Two reforms that impact education could be the community and societal.

5.2.1. The community impacts education in more ways than one may know. The community is almost like a support group for the schools. Whatever the schools may need or want done around the school the communities are willing to put forth effort to make it happen.

5.2.2. Societal Reforms is another way that impacts education. For this reform to work it takes the community. Having the social standpoint within the school systems can be a voice on what can be improved or can be left alone.
