Education Issues
The act or process of imparting or acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally of preparing oneself for mature life.
High school drop outs

Some can't afford schooling.

Without graduating from high school a persons chance to have a well paying job is low.
In modern times, it is illegal to drop out of school before the age of 16. If you do so it could lead to your parent or guardian, paying a fee or jail time.
Main Idea / Thesis
Education is an issue present in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain and is still present today financially, in the demand for a good education, and people dropping out
Education in Society
Pap showed up at Widow Douglas' house and told Huck that he is not allowed to go to school. That he can't be smarter than his family.
Shows how parents did not care about their childrens education back then. They did not want to be shown up by their child.
1. Importance of going to college
Today it's more important to get a higher education than it was in Hucks time because now you need a higher education to do things where in Hucks time you didn't need that much education to be successful

Shows how your spelling can impact the way you talk and how you speak.
"She worked me middling hard for about an hour, and then the widow made her ease up."(Twain 2).
Miss Watson is trying to teach Huck how to spell correctly.

"After supper she got out her book and learned me about Moses and the Bulrushers; and I was in a sweat to find out all about him; but by-and-by she let it out that Moses had been dead a considerable long time; so then I didn't care no more."(Twain 2).
Widow Douglas is trying to teach Huck about the importance of religion, but once he finds out Moses has been dead he doesn't care.
This shows how kids can loose interest in something that easily. That they should pick something they're interested in.
2. Skipping School
Also called Truancy,
is becoming more
and more of a problem
today. Huck was able to skip school and noy get caught but today that is less likely.
3.Unqualified teaching
Small schools are continuing to hire unqualified teachers due to a lack of money
Education is the process of giving systematic instruction at school or a University. Education faces many issues such as high school drop outs, and finacial problems which can both lead to low chances of having a well paying job in the future. Since the 19th century education has had issues with segregation, and also equal education opportunities. There are several issues conflicting with education in the novel
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
, such as Widow Douglas' struggle to get Huck to go to school, and also when Miss Watson tries to teach him proper grammar. Back then it wasn't uncommon for a kid to not attend school, which was one of the reasons why Pap didn't want Huck going to school. Education today still faces issues dealing with drop outs, and unqualified teaching.
