The Dog Ate My Indian Education Education is a crucial part of our world. Every moment of everyday humans are learning. Whether it is learning a new word, how to do something or even a new show humans are being educated. Education and learning are incredible things. Carlyon Foster Segal’s essay, “The Dog Ate my Flash Drive and other Tales of Woe” and Sherman Alexie’s essay “Indian Education” differ in their perspectives of the difficulties in education through the format they were written in, the
a place of torture, conflict, and social issues because of the lack of quality in education. Many people have noticed the change in quality. One person that has noticed this and experienced such lack of quality and torture is Sherman Alexie. He wrote a piece called “Indian Education”, which has to do with his experience of the education system on the reserve and in public school. Many believe that the education system is fine and doesn’t need any changing. This is not true because due to people being
classrooms. In Sherman Alexie’s, “Indian Education,” he discusses the different stages of a Native Americans childhood compared to his white counterparts. He is describing the schooling of a child, Victor, in an American Indian reservation, grade by grade. He uses a few different examples of satire and irony, in which could be viewed in completely different ways, expressing different feelings to the reader. Racism and bullying are both present throughout this essay between Indians and Americans.
