Songs that Influence Education

Paul Simon: Me and Julio down by the Schoolyard
The Police: Message in a Bottle
Alice Cooper: School's out for the Summer

Primary Education should be a concern for everyone around the world. We live in a time where education has the power to liberate oppressed peoples and deconstruct social barriers that divide us. I believe the quotes I have selected best describe the importance of education and its power in the world. The images are trying to provide an idea of an equal education throughout the world. To truly succeed in achieving equal education throughout the world, we must first educate children in our own community. Songs like Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” present an idea that education will not only advance your career opportunities, but it will also set you apart from the mindless workers of society.
