The very concept of placing a monetary value on education is repugnant. In order for a society and a species as a whole to grow, education is needed. So why make it difficult for people to receive higher levels of education?….. Unless you wanted to manipulate different subgroups of a society and reduced their intelligence level? Education is a tradition passed on from our elders. When we learn something new we teach it to the young or to the ones who do not know. We do this so the next generation will be smarter and learn from the previous generations’ mistakes. Education is a right that you earn when you are born. Not a privilege for those who have items of perceived value.
