management is often overlooked when looking at achievement gaps. Many classroom teachers struggle with controlling the dysfunctional behaviors which help in widening the achievement gaps. Student diagnoses and student thinking. Observing your students thoroughly to see how they think, is another key component that is often overlooked. Improving students' relationships with their teachers to provide the essential support needed for student learning. Often, this component is not put at the top as a priority. Building a rapport with your students show a connection that is vital in building trust and respect for both the classroom teacher and the student. When this element is neglected, the bond needed to create a trusting environment for learning is lost. When a student doubts they are being supported, then their level of motivation shrinks. Positive reinforcement to help enhance student learning, especially for that of those students from a disadvantaged environment. This is a crucial element when dealing with children from a more challenged area. All populations of student benefits from practice. If teachers design appropriate practice activities, students can learn to compensate for the unique learning difficulties.
Biblical Worldview Education is an earned right; therefore, every student has the right to a free education. This right should not be taken away or altered based on judgment and bias. Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."

Being in a position to where what you do makes the difference in the lives of young people is major.

Sadly, this is most of the world's perception today, which is to judge and treat someone based on color and race. This issue will continue unless the world takes a change for the better. In more spiritual and moral growth, all educators should love and respect, just as they would want to be loved and appreciated. Conclusion In conclusion, gender, race, ethnicity and socioeconomic status play a vital role in the way children are treated and educated in many school systems across the country. Teachers and schools for years have judged and grouped minority children in a category that says that they are less important than those of non-minority students; therefore, failing them as a human race.
