The struggle for education first started during the Civil Rights Movement, from 1954 to 1968 in the United States to abolish segregation to aquire equal freedom, rights and treatment for African Americans. During that time, only whites were able to acquire great education, while blacks had to fight towards getting great education and had to struggle with so much racism, discrimination and oppression from whites, due to the severity of segregation. What made segregation so severe was that since blacks and whites were separated, it gave whites the absolute white supremacy to believe that they are superior and much better than blacks. During the Civil Rights Movement to Washington DC, through white polices as Martin Luther King, Coretta Scott King, Rosa Parks, other civil rights activists and thousands of African American people assembled and protested during the Civil Rights Movement for equal rights, treatment and equality for African Americans and for African American children to also receive their right to acquire education and even higher education as well.
Over time, since education overall has advanced by including elementary degree, high school diplomas to bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, associate and doctorate degree that can cause for the United States of America to represent high education level dystopia,dealing with the environmental issues we are facing being a big hindrance towards us wanting to gain higher education. Honestly, a lot of high school, college masters and doctorate graduates, it took a lot of struggle in order for them to finally graduate and access good jobs. It was a struggle dealing with the education system failing us by not focusing on the best for the students, but more towards themselves. It led to students feeling challenged and pressured, which negatively affected their academic performance. However, when the education system addressed this issue, the student’s academic performance increased.
