School Daze

   The importance of education seems to be a universal value. Every society devotes resources into passing on knowledge to the next generation. The quality of that education, however, is greatly affected by the environment in which learning takes place. In our own country, we have had a wide disparity between our schools and this definitely gives some students an advantage. Here are some images depicting a range of classrooms.
