My work is interested in theunrecognized student forced to participate in the American educational system. Thecurrent version of this passé system continues to afflict minorities in ways thatcannot be fixed with existing ritual. Students are withheld their right tochoose, and are in fact voiceless in their matriculation. This body of workexamines the contentions minorities face in education and its link between thelarger concerns of defect. “The Seat of the Troubled” Series addresses thesystemic failure which reduces students for capital gains.
