Accordingto most scholars and academic researchers, early childhood educationis very important in developing the necessary skills for one tobecome an astute learner in adulthood(Endlich102).Ithas also been proven that learning is the catalyst required for oneto achieve future success. For instance, Brink Lindsey gives insightsto this ideology in his book “the Culture of Success” where hesuggests that students need to be taken under a comprehensivedevelopment program if they are going to realize success in thefuture. All this has been thoroughly discussed below.

According toBrink Lindsey book ‘culture of successes’ he argues that povertyamong other reasons has been a core factor why the minority groups inAmerica have low intake in universities. Alternatively, in Jasmine’,argues about the poor society by trying to portray the image ofjasmine. She sells small things for her upkeep though the husband isa wealthy business man. She needs to take an online class but has nocomputer skills. However, the book ‘middle of class’, depicts thelevel of poverty in the society. Asa consequence, the intermediate class was apprehensive withuncertainties and insecurities by the late 1980s, illustrated by whatEhrenreich demands &quotthe yuppie strategy&quot — the posturingand self-destructive competition of the rich that has demanded a highresponsibility in terms of both currency and self-respect to a classthat once demarcated itself by its specialized autonomy and decenttruthfulness. It is good to note that the three articles are inagreement of the fact that education is a key factor in determiningthe success of an individual or the society in general.

Basingon the books read I am most drawn to the book ‘culture ofsuccesses’. The book outlines clearly reasons why the minoritycommunities in America do not attend colleges and universities. Ithas been my point of concern too why it happens so and have found outseveral reasons as indicated in the book. First, the level of povertyamong the minority groups in America is much higher hence they cannotafford to fund the expenses/school fees in high learning Institutions(Endlich102).Lower-incomechildren do not go to college due to&nbsplackof money. Secondly, even if the deficiency of money is notrestricting many well-qualified scholars from enrolling, it couldstill explain why less-advantaged kids are not achieving theabilities that were going to college requires. For one thing,lower-income kids incline to go to under-funded faculties that offeran inferior education. However, going back to the Civil RightsAct-sponsored Coleman report of 1966, scholarship after study hasexposed that most of the disparity in pedagogic accomplishment occurswithin schools, not among them. The capabilities students convey withthem to class staple more than any alterations in school packages(Endlich 166).Last but not least,the environment they are brought up in has an effect when they arestudying.Most of their parents are not professionals hence they do notencourage their kids from childhood the importance of education.Finally, is the ignorance of the parents?Child psychologists Betty Hart and Todd have confirmed theconsequence of course on the differences in how parents interact withtheir undeveloped progenies. After observing several dozen kinfolkswith toddlers over the progress of a couple of ages, they were ableto manuscript histrionic modifications in the passion and environmentof the verbal motivation the broods were getting. The study evidentlyexhibited that the minority group’s parents were ignorant.

Nearlyall the books relate to one another in one way or the other. Thethemes in the books co-relate with each other.Several leitmotifs have been brought out differently in its contest.First, the theme of success has been brought out clearly. Studentsachieve in high school to join the colleges in the book ‘culture ofsuccesses’. The book depicts reason for the student’s success aswell as their failure. The book views the childrenfrom professional families to be more advantaged than those studentsfrom working-class parents and welfare parents. In the reserveJasmine, Jasmine husband is described to have been a successful man,Prakish whomechanism two professions and scholarships for his credential examswhile Jasmine runs a Ladies’ Group raffle and sells detergent tomake money.the couple is determined to succeed only for Prakash to meet hisdeath when a bomb lust found him in a shopping mall for his journeyto Florida. In the book ‘middle of class’, various people areviewed successful depending on their struggle.

Anotherprimary theme discussed in the books is poverty, ‘culture ofsuccesses’ brings out families of the minority communities inAmerica are of low status compared to those of the Majoritycommunities. The obvious purpose for this education crack is thatcollege is too costly. After all, tuition charges have dashed farahead of increase, while many in the working class have seen theirrevenues deteriorate or slip (Endlich 212). In particular, acquiringof knowledge is not stylish for toddlers from lower-income families —kids who are unreasonably black or Hispanic. However, in the bookmiddle of class, thediscovery of the poor was one of a series of critical &quotdiscoveries&quotthat Ehrenreich sees as changing the consciousness of theprofessional middle class. Poverty is also a major reason why thingsaren’t running the way they should in the society.

Onthe other hand, Jasmine travels to Florida and on arrival she meetsLillian Gordon, who takes her in. Mrs. Gordon is also housing threeother women. She and helps Jazzy get to New York to meet withProfessor Vadhera. The life depicts poverty to the three women andJasmine as they cannot afford to rent their own houses.

Oneof the questions that has been asked in the book ‘culture ofsuccesses’ is if more money isn’t the answer, what does have animpact? Many people will bear me witness that they have all alongbeen thinking that having money can resolve each and every problemone has. The writer states that money is not an issue but talking toyour child will improve her performance. My stand for the question isnot quite different from the author’s views. Money cannot provideone with everything. There are things money cannot buy whatsoever. Achild should start their chosen fields’ earlier in life, andcategorization more periods per day of exercise over the course ofmany years.

Thebook Jasmine has several teachings on social, survival, diversity,and socioeconomically status. It points out the problems that faceJasmine from the word go. Her husband passes away when they are justpreparing to leave to Florida. She is socially affected by her demisethough she is strong to cop up with the situation to travel. Duringher travel in the ship, she is sexually abused by the captain in amotel (Endlich 145).Jasmine contemplates killing herself but instead kills Half-Face. Sheburns Prakash’s suit that she carried with her and leaves themotel. For her survival, she withstands the pains of losing herhusband she stays with Lillian with other three women under the sameroof for a period of time. Several men fall in love with her but shedeclines their proposals. She has just moved in to Florida after thedemise of her husband and she cannot sustain herself in the new town.

Thebook ‘culture of successes has brought the importance of educationand money at the same time. Higher education has been given the upperhand. However, the parents are urged that money is not a necessitywhen taking their children to colleges. The parents are asked to talkand encourage their kids to advance in education.College-educated proficient parents make sure their kids are incollege-bound patrician clusters, while working-class and underclasskids tend to descend toward others like them (Endlich 125).Subsequently, children on either side of the session divide grow upwith very dissimilar approaches about the importance of schoolaccomplishment which leads to different prospects about future lifeplans and different self-conceptions in relation to superior society.The three books have clearly demonstrated the issues of poverty amongthe people. There is a focus on the African American students. TheAfrican American students are portrayed in the book Culture ofSuccess as being poor and struggling to achieve success and accessquality education. The book Culture of Success clearly indicates andgives insights as to why he African American children and studentsare not accessing the quality education in United States. TheseAfrican American students acquire substandard education. It isevident from the book that the low quality education is onlyaccessible to the people are from poor families (Endlich 87). It isclear from the book that lack of sufficient funds affects the accessto various services such as education. The book has given insightthat education is as important as the money. It is clear from thebook that the parents are encouraged to teach and guide theirchildren that money and education are both important.

Thebooks highlighted up here, have several ideas they put across rangingfrom poverty, intelligence, success, status, survival, and others.Each book tackles the ideas differently from each other. The book‘culture of successes’ explains how poverty among other reasonshas been a core factor why the African American students inuniversities are minimal compared to the whites (Endlich152).Alternatively, in Jasmine’, Jasmine portrays the poor society. Shesells small things for her upkeep though the husband is a wealthybusiness man. She needs to take an online class but has no computerskills. However, the book ‘middle of class’, depicts the level ofpoverty in the society. As aconsequence, the intermediate class was apprehensive withuncertainties and insecurities by the late 1980s, illustrated by whatEhrenreichdemands &quotthe yuppie strategy&quot — the posturingand self-destructive competition of the rich that has demanded a highresponsibility in terms of both currency and self-respect to a classthat once demarcated itself by its specialized autonomy anddecenttruthfulness.

Accordingto most scholars and academic researchers, early childhood educationis very important in developing the necessary skills for one tobecome an astute learner in adulthood.Ithas also been proven that learning is the catalyst required for oneto achieve future success. For instance, BrinkLindsey gives insights to this ideology in his book “the Culture ofSuccess” where he suggests that students need to be taken under acomprehensive development program if they are going to realizesuccess in the future. He also suggests that students need to betaken under a comprehensive development program if they are going torealize success in the future. All this has been thoroughly discussedbelow.

Thebooks highlighted in this peer review have several ideas they putacross ranging from poverty, intelligence, success, status, survival,and others. Each book tackles the ideas differently from each other.The consistent factor is that poverty among other reasons has been acore factor why the minority groups in America have a low intake inuniversities. Jasmine comes from a poor society in Trinidad and hasto be smuggled into the US. She is only able to infiltrate thecountry because custom officials are lax in detecting her presence(Kennedy &amp Kennedy 549). However, the book ‘middle of class`,depicts the level of poverty in the society. Asa consequence, the intermediate class was apprehensive withuncertainties and insecurities by the late 1980s, illustrated by whatMary and William Kennedy portray concerning life in Trinidad and theUS. The posturing and self-destructive competition of the rich hasdemanded a high responsibility. This has been in terms of bothcurrency and self-respect to a class that once demarcated itself byits specialized autonomy and decent truthfulness. It is good to notethat the three articles are in agreement with the fact that educationis a critical factor that contributes to the success of an individualor the society in general.

Basingon the books read I am most drawn to the book ‘Writing in theDisciplines.` The book outlines clearly reasons why the minoritycommunities in America do not attend colleges and universities.Illegal immigrants into the country face the hardest time trying tosource for higher learning as epitomized by Jasmine’s experience(Kennedy &amp Kennedy 553). It has been my point of concern why ithappens so and have found out several reasons as indicated in thebook. First, the level of poverty among the minority groups inAmerica is much higher hence they cannot afford to fund theexpenses/school fees in high learning Institutions. Lower-incomechildren do not go to college due to&nbsplackof money. Secondly, even if the deficiency of money is notrestricting many well-qualified scholars from enrolling, it couldstill explain why less-advantaged kids are not achieving theabilities that were going to college requires. For one thing,lower-income kids incline to go to under-funded faculties that offeran inferior education. The capabilities students convey with them toclass staple more than any alterations in school packages.

Lastbut not least,the environment they are brought up in has an effect when they arestudying.Most of their parents are not professionals hence they do notencourage their kids from childhood the importance of education.Finally, the ignorance of the parents also contributes to childrenmissing out on learning opportunities. Jasmine had a poor backgroundin Trinidad which forced her to relocate to the US in search ofbetter opportunities. However, she has neither a valid green card nora social security number (Kennedy &amp Kennedy 553). Childpsychologists Betty Hart and Todd have confirmed the consequence ofcourse on the differences in how parents interact with theirundeveloped progenies. After observing several dozen kinfolks withtoddlers over the progress of a couple of ages, they were able tohistrionic manuscript modifications in the passion and environment ofthe verbal motivation the broods were getting. The study evidentlyexhibited that the minority group’s parents were ignorant.

Nearlyall the books relate to one another in one way or the other. Thethemes in the books correlate with each other.Several leitmotifs have been brought out differently in its contest.First, the theme of success has been brought out clearly. Studentsachieve in high school to join the colleges in the book ‘Writing inthe Disciplines’. The book depicts reason for the student’ssuccess as well as their failure. The book views the childrenfrom professional families to be more advantaged than those studentsfrom working-class parents and welfare parents. In the book, Jasmineis described as a poor immigrant without any asset or relative in thenew country. Nevertheless, she meets various persons that are able tohelp her and uplift her social standing. The truck driver at theoutset grants her safe passage into the country. Subsequently, theDaboos grant her asylum in the country despite the fact that sheentered the country illegally. The Moffats then empower her andexpose her to the opportunities presented by the American way of life(Kennedy &amp Kennedy 553). Despite this, Jasmine remains true toher culture. She insists on paying for her own drinks and also dancesto the refreshing music which reminds her of her Caribbean culture.This aspect highlights the importance of culture in shapingcharacter.

Anotherprimary theme discussed in the books is poverty, ‘Writing in theDisciplines’ brings out families of the minority communities inAmerica are of low status compared to those of the Majoritycommunities. The obvious purpose for this education crack is thatcollege is too costly. After all, tuition charges have dashed farahead of increase, while many in the working class have seen theirrevenues deteriorate or slip. In particular, acquiring of knowledgeis not stylish for toddlers from lower-income families — kids whoare unreasonably black or Hispanic. However, in the book middle ofclass, theunearthing of poor persons increases the awareness of the middleclass. Poverty is also a major reason things are not running the waythey should in the society.

Onthe other hand, Jasmine travels to Detroit and gets accommodation atPlantation Motel under a family of Trinidad Indians (Kennedy &ampKennedy 550). The Daboos have a booming business fixing illegalimmigrants into the country with employment. Jasmine gets hosted asshe works as an accountant. Later, she works for an American familyas a babysitter. The Moffits trust Jasmine to look after Muffie,their young daughter. Additionally, she also caters for housecleaning and cooking duties (Kennedy &amp Kennedy 551). Granted, theMoffits lack religious convictions (Kennedy &amp Kennedy 553).Nevertheless, they pay Jasmine a higher salary that enables her totake care of her various needs.

Oneof the major topic discussed in the book ‘Writing in theDisciplines` is if more money is not the answer, what does have animpact? Many people will bear me witness that they have all alongbeen thinking that having money can resolve each and every problemone has. The writer states that money is not an issue but talking toyour child will improve her performance. My stand for the question isnot quite different from the author’s views. Money cannot provideone with everything. There are things money cannot buy whatsoever, asacknowledged by Jasmine during her employment at the Moffits (Kennedy&amp Kennedy 553). A child should start their chosen fields’earlier in life, and categorization more periods per day of exerciseover the course of many years.

Thebook has several teachings on social, survival, diversity, andsocioeconomically status. It points out the challenges that faceJasmine from the moment she leaves Trinidad. Her entry into the UShas to be carefully managed so as to avoid detection by customofficials. She gets help from the Daboos who agree to host herdependent upon her performing menial tasks. However, she does not getpaid her dues by the family (Kennedy &amp Kennedy 550).However, Jasmine tries to maintain her self-respect and dignitydespite these challenges. Jasmine then lives with the Moffits who areable to offer her a higher salary. The fact that she still has toperform household duties so as to earn a living illustrates thedifferences in social structure (Kennedy &amp Kennedy 552). Granted,she acknowledges that life in Detroit is still far better than theone she lived in Trinidad with her parents.

Thebook ‘Writing in the Disciplines’ has brought the importance ofeducation and money at the same time. Higher education has been giventhe upper hand. However, the parents learn that money is not anecessity when taking their children to colleges. The parents areasked to talk and encourage their kids to advance in education.College-educated proficient parents make sure their kids are incollege-bound patrician clusters while working-class, and underclasskids tend to descend toward others like them. Subsequently, childrenon either side of the session divide grow up with very dissimilarapproaches about the importance of school accomplishment which leadsto different prospects about future life plans and differentself-conceptions about superior society. For instance, life inTrinidad is contrasted to that in USA (Kennedy &amp Kennedy 550).The three books have clearly demonstrated the issues of poverty amongthe people.

Thereis a focus on the students from marginalized areas. They areportrayed in the book ‘Writing in the Disciplines’ as being poorand struggling to achieve success and access quality education. Thebook ‘Writing in the Disciplines’ clearly indicates and givesinsights as to why these students are not accessing the qualityeducation in the United States. These disadvantaged students acquirea substandard education. It is evident from the book that thelow-quality education is only accessible to the people are fromlow-income families (Kennedy &amp Kennedy 557). It is clear from thebook that lack of sufficient funds affects the access to variousservices such as education. The book has given insight that educationis as important as the money. It is clear from the book that theparents are encouraged to teach and guide their children that moneyand education are both important.
