As an educator and a mom I am constantly reminding my students and my sons that a college education will open more opportunities for them than they can imagine! And, in the majority of the cultures in the western world that would be true. In my naivte, I figured that the same would hold true even in third world countries; maybe especially in a country rife with poverty. That is why this story from Compassion Blogger Bonnie Grey who is in the Dominican Republic right now both shocked and encouraged me!
