The relationship between access and relationship

As I reflected this week about the relationship between access and education, I thought a lot about the balance that needs to be maintained between academics and life. Access to education is achieved by not only being smart but by also having the resources needed to maintain schooling. Poor and rich people get different educations, but not everyone gets the same education. Your access to education is not the only thing that makes education, it is your approach to it. If you don't appreciate it- all the access in the world won't do anything. I am definitely lucky to have access to education and reflecting on the fact that I've gotten both experiential and academic learning, I feel blessed!
