    This poem of yours; “The Rise of the African Ghostwriter” caught my eyes. You explain well… a dispute I have had with persons who considered themselves well educated. Children of parents with a lesser amount of education, are not condemned to follow the parents footsteps. A youth, CAN be taught to learn and excel. They just need love, compassion and guidance.

    You make an excellent point. I know that when my daughter was in school, the rich brats had a jump ahead because they had so many fancy gadgets the other kids couldn't afford. I also found that the educational systems seems to be more about memorizing than learning and many teachers spend more time giving pop quizes and tests than actually teaching. I also find it unfair that privileged kids are off to college and disadvantaged ones who worked just as hard get left behind.

    A very intuitive view of intellectual snobery and the many who placate their values. An outstanding impressive write Vicky!

    Your talent pours throughout this well written piece. I wrote a piece sometime back on race called "What my eyes see now". Love your take on it. Hugs. Michael

    This poem has more truth in it than I've seen in a poem in a long time! You can gain wisdom and knowledge through all walks of life, not just through educational systems! Powerful write!

    It is true that teaching children to memorize does not teach them to THINK said it has taken so long for US schools to get this!! Light & Love

    Epic write! A lot of people stand behind their education. Is that all they want to become? Or do we continue to shoot for the stars? Love the ending, it's educational for all!

    Will be reading more of your poems, but I loved the lines: a capitalistic market reinforcing the need for Diplomas at the expense of wisdom. thought the poem got a little off track after that, but this is good work.
