Description (Dublin Core)

This essay was produced as a part of the American Studies program at California High School in San Ramon, California. The essay is in response to the prompt "Is America currently living up to its core values?" This essay argues that America is living up to it's core value of hard-work which is shown by Americans' beliefs about work, but it is not living up to it's value of equality as it can still be seen in many areas today. It also includes references to the following modern examples: inequality in the workplace and Americans caring more about work than most other countries. This essay looks at when these values were introduced and how well America is currently doing at keeping up with these values.
