As students across the United States and Canada start their school year at a university, college, or other type of post-secondary education, it is worthwhile noting the vast number of people who can only dream of higher education. Marginalized and vulnerable people simply don’t have the means to access education at a higher level. How societies measure themselves is how able marginalized people are to improve themselves individually and collectively.
In order for these groups of people to better their situation, they require access to education to allow them to become employed and join the workforce. That is why education must be a right and not a privilege.
