I was told that education
was going to be a major key.
No matter how many hills
Degrees ’ll lead transformation,
Higher wages, liberation…
What nobody dared to say
Was that the social class of your nest
Would continue determining
Who gets the highest earning.
Inequality wasn’t going to end.
Written in one of those nights thinking about the limits of education when we do not change the social structure at large.
