Back then it didn’t matter whether you went to school or not because most parents needed their kids’ help with extra work on the field, but now it matters. An education is something that is guaranteed to all American citizens and if you don’t go to school, someone will come to your house to find out why you haven’t been attending.

For example, I remember when I was in kindergarten we were all assigned a job as if it was line leader hall monitor etc… but as Kozol mentions, “Starting in kindergarten children in school were being asked to think about the jobs that they might choose when they grow up.

He was born and raised in Mexico but he was determined to do something. He attended the University of Nebraska as well as the Texas State University in San Marcos and completed his school and got his degree as a Respiratory Therapist.
