even believe themselves that they will fail which can cause them to. This would turn into a macro level that would affect the society as a whole. The perceptions teachers hold for their students plays a huge role in the student’s outcome. 80% of teachers are middles class Caucasians that have classrooms that are becoming more and more diverse. Teachers are needing specialized training to be able to teach their kids in more affective manners. If a teacher does not give their student their best chance at an education, then that student can grow up missing out on important learning opportunities. They can also grow up not feeling like they can achieve or succeed which can cause them to fall into poverty such as when they were younger and in school (Davis, 2016). Special training of teachers is a good solution for social problems within educational systems. Being able to understand a student’s cultural background will help teachers become better educators. This is because it would close the gap to a lack of understanding. It is important
for teachers to have intimate knowledge of what their student is living every day. Teachers can also incorporate social issues and injustice into their curriculum to get their students to talk about and become more aware of social issues. Today’s world is very different from what it was 50 years ago. Segregation in schools has not been around for years so all students are given equal opportunity. However, if teachers are missing out on teaching opportunities due to a lack of connection or understanding of different cultures, then these teachers need to be making extra steps and there should be addition training provided by the school (Davis, 2016).
