The American dream is what everybody wants to have. Everybody wants this because they have the freedom to choose who they want. Not everybody can achieve the American dream because they don’t have a chance to get an education which is a big part of the American dream. Achieving the American dream can also be hard for many people because they don’t come from a wealthy family.Without having an education it can be hard to find a good job that pays well.
Education is important to the American dream because it helps people have more opportunities in life. Both Condoleezza Rice and Dierde Prevett talked about the importance of their education and how it mattered to them. Rice talks about how her great grandfather had decided that he would save up cotton and go to college. Even though he had succeeded he eventually ran out of cotton to pay for his education so he had to earn a scholarship by becoming a Presbyterian minister. Dierde Prevett believed that she was living the American dream because she had the opportunity to teach children.
Both Condoleezza Rice and Dierde Prevett believe that all children no matter what background they came from should have an opportunity to have an education. Condoleezza Rice and Dierde Prevett speak on the importance of education. They both want to make sure that the children have what their family may have not had. Knowing this tells us how important education can be and without one it can be hard to get a job that pays well. Others should understand the importance of education and how hard it can be for those who don’t have a chance to get an education.
