While growing up, kids were used to hearing statements such as knowledge is power and education is the master key to life. However, life happens and some people are not able to get the education they desire.
When people become adults and are stripped of their innocence, other things come into play as they become more aware of their inadequacies.
It is no news that educated people are often given better consideration compared to their uneducated counterparts when it comes to some things.
In relationships, this also comes into play. Some ladies would not approach men who are not literate and the same thing goes for some men who would not approach uneducated ladies.
This is interesting seeing as many people believe love is blind and it conquers all.

Finally, some other people were neither here nor there as they believe that everybody is educated because the lack of formal education does not mean being an illiterate.
