Access to Education Reflection

Of the many paths of access, a greater question is raised. Does anyone have a complete access to education? Tompkins chose the path toward academia, which disregarded her path of the outside world. Luttrell’s women had a sense of the real world, but barely had a taste of schooling. Rodriquez chose the academic path as well but shut out his home education. In each situation no one had a complete access to education. There were numerous ideas and paths that each person could explore, but those paths were not taken. There was barely any thinking or experience done for Tompkins and Rodriquez in the path of the outside world and vice versa for Luttrell’s students. This idea of access to education in accordance to experience and thinking can be applied to the greater majority. The upper and middle classes do not always have a sense of the struggles the lower class faces and the lower class does not always know the benefits that come with an education. Although the three classes have access to education, it is incomplete. In each case, there is always something that can be experienced and thought about. The process of learning is endless and with the possibility of an endless education, access to education will never be complete, but through thinking and experience, it can broaden.

Thoughts on Education (re-post)

After leaving today's class, I realized that education is not just what is written by scholars in published work or what teachers or professors teach you in class. It is much more than these two things put together. Education is also the experiences that we learn and grow from day to day. It comes from the people we meet, people we know, and people we see.

Hello everyone,

My name is Tanya Hamid and I am from Broomall, Pennsylvania, about twenty minutes from Bryn Mawr College. I am an only child. You can all imagine what it was like for my parents to drop me off at my dorm last week.
