The writer has selected the book Burro Genius: A Memoir because it provides a rich background from which the American education system can be reviewed. The book explores the challenges and problems that various students and teachers experience in the American education system. The book tells the story of a young Mexican man, Victor Villaseñor who went to school in the 1940s. Despite his ability in mathematics, Victor lags behind because of the challenges he has in English language. His teachers and classmates think that he is stupid and lazy and cannot learn English (Villasenor, 2005). However, Victor suffers from dyslexia, a developmental reading disorder. The disease is diagnosed when victor is 44 years old after his school going children experience difficulty in reading. These challenges do not hinder the progress of Victor in his pursuit to work hard to achieve his childhood dreams. Therefore, this paper reviews the book Burro Genius: A Memoir with a focus on the success or failure of the author in illuminating the experiences in the American school system.

Plus, they give 5% of any affiliate fees they make to nonprofit causes.Book Burro was the best book price comparison extension because it could search libraries, both county and university (via worldcat), as well as other book vendors.

If an item comes up "false," does that mean it's checked out, or that it's not in the library's catalog? I'm guessing the former; if anyone knows for sure, hit the comments and let me know.Amazon isn't the only source for books. You can often save evenmore money by buying elsewhere.
