It starts in elementary school.  The are girl's achievement rewards pinned up on the walls.  Special recognition days for people of color, handicaps, etc.  Nothing for white boys with no big issues.  This continues as the boys go through the entire Oregon education system.  The Disney flicks lionize everyone except white males.  This societal "shunning" does not let the white boys develop normally.  The two daughters did well in school.  Both were honor roll students.  The three sons all struggled, or more realistically, did not apply themselves.  The military built up the son's confidence in them selves and all three boys excelled.

The public schools had class rooms for auto repair, machine tool operation, sheet metal fabrication, drafting, etc. in my time.  Shop class was the only thing I liked in school.  It kept me there and gave me something to be interested in besides drugs.  The local high school turned the auto shop into a day care for student mothers.  The other shop classes were discontinued.

It was difficult for Rose and me.  We knew the local police officers on a first name basis thanks to the boys.  One needed his record expunged so he could enlist.  It was a major effort to get all three graduated from high school.  One big challenge was trying to bolster the boys self confidence without encouraging them to be racial bigots or sexist.  Dealing with children is like jacking up a car.  Raising one wheel higher lowers another one unless all the wheels are supported.
