Education in America

I don’t believe that education is the path to freedom

I know that education is the path to freedom

So I don’t believe that America is the land of the free

Because education here isn’t about knowledge

it’s all about the money

We don’t go to school for knowledge

we do it because we’re promised a bigger paycheck

We’re told to accept debt

Money is freedom here

Make enough money and debt won’t matter

You’ll buy your way out of debt

The same way you bought yourself out of poverty

you don’t.

At least, not really.

Education is the path to freedom

but that path has been blocked

by greed.

      1. Yes, I’m sure it is frustrating… and exhausting, but change can and must happen. In the meantime self-education and questioning are something you’re obviously well versed at. Sharing your hope!
