Always Running and housing Issues
Environmental factors entail of the physical, social, and attitudinal environment in which individuals live and function. This division into a questionable division into physical, social, and attitudinal environments, and very quickly drift into boundary problems because attitudes are social, and the physical environment is only relevant in the ICF context when it becomes meaningful through human activity. Social environment, e.g., housing change one’s perspective of the world.
Rodriguez narrates his story, in his book “LA Vida Loca” about the prevailing discrimination of housing based on race. Discrimination based on housing and neighborhood is also very common in the USA. Housing and neighborhood not only change through and perception but also directly or indirectly connected with school dropout. ” They are associates of a social stratum which contains welfare mothers, housing project inhabitants, immigrant families, the homeless and jobless. ( Rodriguez 34)
At another place, he reveals the bitter realities of American society in these words. “This work is a dispute for the reform of American society—not where a few profits at the outlay of the many, but where everybody has entree to better health care, clothing, food, and housing based on requirement, not whether they can pay for them (Rodriguez 34)
Housing is one of the most important solutions in a person's life. It is also a key factor in society when it comes to livelihoods. As Rodriguez pointed out in his book, “for years, L.A. was famous for restraining treaties, where some zones were off-limits to “undesirables.” In spite of the struggle for jobs and housing, we found mutual ground there, between the rolling mills, bucket shops, and foundries”( Rodriguez 43)
Concludingly, it is evident that social environment like housing put the effect on one’s perspective of life. Discrimination, drugs, bad neighborhood, gangs completely changes one’s perspective. Like Rodriguez, narrated his story and it is one of the main reasons for his school drop and joining gang was his neighborhood.
