I'm writing a synthesis paper for my college english composition class.
My topic is: The relationship between social class and public education.
So far, my thesis: My argument is that students in public education should not be discriminated against based on what social class they were born into.
But it needs a lot of work. So any input or advice would be great. I need an A on this paper, and in this class actually, so help would be greatly appreciated for this. :)
Social class is really difficult to define and measure. Economic class (family income) is much easier to find information on.
Leave "My argrument is" out, and start with the next word. Use "socio-economic" rather than "social class" -- unless you're talking about students in a country other than the US!!
Students in public schools in the US should not be discriminated against based on their socio-economic level.
But it's still not a very strong thesis; after all, who would argue against you?
Read these and let us know what you come up with.
Ok. How about...:
Students should not be discriminated against other students based on their family's social status and income.
