Adam David Miller, the narrator and protagonist of the memoir Ticket to Exile, talks about
series of events that happened in Orangeburg County, South Carolina during the 1930’s. Specifically, we learn
about the conditions of the racially segregated school he attended when he received his education. At the same
Jonathan Kozol’s research in his
essay “Still Separate, Still Unequal”, he
points out that schools
which were greatly
segregated twenty-five or thirty years ago are no less segregated now. He refines
his argument by composing research at various schools that resulted in expectations of his claim. Through an
analytical approach in comparing and contrasting the school Adam David Miller
’academic life in the 1930s
attended during the 1930’s and
research of schools that were addressed by Jonathan Kozol in
the year 2003, vast similarities are found in schools’ student
curriculum, and services and facilities.
Through comparing and contrasting Adam David Miller’s academic life
in the 1930s and Jonathan Kozol’s research of schools in the year 2003, despite some differences evident, vast
similarities are found in student enrollment, learning curriculum, and services and facilities.
Although there are differences in student enrollment, both Miller’s high school experience and Kozol’s
research in schools emphasize racial inequality in student enrollment.
In comparison to Adam David Miller’s
experience in high school and
Jonathan Kozol’s research in schools, racial inequality in student enrollment
schools that have been researched by Jonathan Kozol,
there seems to be many similarities in terms of
student composition present.
When Miller received his education in Orangeburg County, South Carolina during
the 1930’s, the Jim Crow laws—a series of rigid anti-Black laws—prohibited the blacks to be educated in
schools with the whites. (Ferris) The school Miller attended—Dunton Memorial School—was designated for
black people who could not afford better well-off black schools. The effect of Jim Crow laws has

has progressed through the efforts of civil rights movement from the
1950’s; as a result, the Jim Crow laws no longer exist.
However, Miller’s school has high enrollment rate of
black students which demonstrates segregation of black students and white students.
Kozol’s researched statistics, schools today are not necessarily 100 percent black. Although certain
schools today show a great amount of black students present, at least the remaining 2 percent of the school’s
composition is not made up of black students.
