When I was growing up in the 70’s and 80’s I use to hear about black people are the most uneducated race, and have the highest drop outs rates. In my family neither mother or father side have education. If anyone is educated there are distant family members. Therefore growing up the children did what they saw the parents do, except when I quit school because I had kids early, I decided to return, and obtain my GED, and life goes on from there, as I continued to seek education through out my life, and even now at 45 still engaging in an learning environment in spite of life challenges along the way. I have refused to live life uneducated and be a statistic.
