The Value of an Education to a Disenfranchised Demographic
An education’s value depends upon the individual’s social status and characteristics.
To the primary- or secondary-school student, an education is an event that must be put up with. They go to school because their parents tell them to do so. They learn without realizing it and when summer comes around, school is forgotten in place of friends and camp. Life is small and small is good. At most, one will worry about SAT scores and which college they might want to go to.
