Education is a wonderful asset to anyone With a good one the sky is the limit and without one opportunity may never come knocking In todays society so much emphasis is put on education How many times have we heard the saying if you get a good education youll get a good job and make a lot of money Even today my parents remind me of how much a college degree would add to my marketability But when does it become too much Is it possible that one could overlook the more important values in life in search to become a learned man In Richard Rodriguezs story Challenging The Traditional Classroom he examines his life as a student and the affects his learning has towards his attitude about family and heritage Rodriguez is without a doubt a very talented student His ability to learn is enviable Many times I would wish that I were able to get into my academics as much as he was into his For example while in high school my English class was reading several plays by Shakespeare With all the difficult words and hard to follow story lines it would have been extremely helpful to have been able to go through the plays willingly and with enthusiasm Instead I read it because I had to for fear of getting a bad grade On the contrary Rodriguez actually enjoyed schoolwork He tells us any book they teachers told me to read I read then waited for them to tell me which books I enjoyed Their every casual opinion I came to adopt and to trumpet when I returned home He approached academics with an eagerness that left everything else behind including his family and culture As Rodriguez became more involved with his academics he drifted further away from his family The intimacy once shared between them was disappearing He takes his first step toward academic success away from his family
