In my opinion that was a pretty interesting documentary. Probably also because I was not really familiar with the whole class thing and how big it is in this country.
But from all what has been said, I truly believe that it is really hard to change the social class and more likely to stay in the one you were born in.
Tammy's son, Matt, has pretty high goals and even though he really wants to change his class and become a lawyer, his chances are not the best. How is one supposed to know how to behave in a different sorrounding if is never going to get the opportunity. I think that it is possible to learn but just like living in a different culture, it is a long process and one has to give up parts of their old life which can be really hard sometimes.
Looking at the popular people at high school makes me wonder if that is really something that is worth achieving. They think that they are something better and do not even care about others but furthermore do not even want to have anything to do with them!
They judge people outside their class by what they look like, how they walk and talk. In my opinion that is really sad and ignorant but moreover nothing that we should try to achieve! We shouldn't judge others based on outer appearance and class but take time to get to know eachother and overcome prejudices and stereotypes.
