A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn–Reflections
One of the major theme that occur in the novel, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is education. This is seen through Johnny and Katie Nolan and Mary Rommely in which they all agree that education is the way out for the Nolan children. For instance, Mary does not know when she moved to America that education is free, in fact she doesn't even know the word "education," but rejoices over and over that her daughters can read and write. Whereas Katie, she has an epiphany part way through the book when she looks at her children who believe that their life is good-who are happy with a Christmas tree and vulgar neighbors and a humble life. She knows that education will save them. The Nolan do think lessons in life are important, schooling will change their quality of life and it's their way out of poverty. I think education is very important because it definitely shapes up your future. My family value their education and would want me to continue on to university because they find it important for me not only to "learn more" but to have a certain status in life. Obviously, my family comes from a insufficient background and they taught to me value what I have and not to take things for granted. This helped shape me up the way I am, I learn more and I re-evaluate the world around me and take time to see things. Although education is important to me, I want to be able to pass my knowledge down to my future generation hoping they will learn to appreciate education and not give it up because of some homework assignment.
