Education is essential in ending poverty, fighting inequality and injustice, and protecting the planet (Schmidt, 2018). Approximately 90% of Americans over the age of 25 have a high school diploma, 34% have a bachelor’s degree, and 13% have an advanced degree [ (master’s professional, doctorate or combination), NCES, 2021].
