Tupac Shakur and My Educational Experience Tupac Shakur learned most of what he found to be of value in his own experience. He felt that formal education was largely irrelevant, because it didn’t have a connection to reality. Tupac was born to a mother that had disdain for authority, and he himself could not recognize any value in the system. Tupac was a revolutionary, not just against the ‘system’, but against any system. Tupuc Shakur “was born into the movement" (Pratt as cited in Dyson 48).

.....e my intelligence, not change who I was. I think schools are as good as they can possibly be. I think if anything, parents should be in school to learn how to properly raise their children so that the children would learn how to behave properly, so that when they went to school, they could focus on learning. Imagine how successful schools could become if they could just focus on teaching subject matter to students, rather than trying to train their behavior so that they become productive citizens. I don’t fault the schools; I fault parents who spawn children without thinking for a minute about how they will morally and ethically teach them so that they can take advantage of the free education that the public school system in America offers.
