Education was the ticket for me and it grieves my heart that our system is set up to advance only those who are privileged enough to pay for it.
Even in, quote on quote “public schools”, there is still a fee.
The only ones who could attend, were the ones whose parents had the money to pay the rent, oh excuse me, the mortgage, to live in those districts.
But what about those who value education enough to apply themselves? What about those of us who work hard and love learning and will do what it takes to get to the top?
Even if we have a starting point that is further behind our peers.
