Education – another way to help improve income inequality

this is a nice article in yesterday’s New York Times about our attitude towards education and how it might affect income equality or upward mobility. here is my little take on this – wages isn’t the only reason for income inequality obviously. how about the lack of responsibility of many parents and students towards education, and the social attitude towards education/studious students? compare that to the attitude towards studying and scholarship in places like India. society doesn’t have the attitude of – “I won’t listen to the scientists, professionals, or the experts because what they say is going against my religious beliefs or my short-term economic interests”.
