The value of a good education became an after thought as young people pursued quick riches and success. ” I believe it’s going to take society as a whole to get parents and young people to value education again, ” states big Rob. ” I believe in the village thing. The parents can’t do it by themselves.”
When looking back Big Rob wished he had talked more to his nieces and nephews about the value of a good education. Many of them are struggling in life and some has been behind bars. Now he takes every opportunity to talk to bus students that will listen to him.
These two individuals, I think, represent a majority of the concerned people who care about the children’s education in today’s society. They care about what might happen to them if parents, teachers, and the community turn their backs on our children.
