  1. I want to humbly differ in the argument that educated people live longer than the uneducated. Sighting example from some African communities in the olden days. The mortality rate among the adult then was very low because of life styles. They were depending on less processed foods hence less sicknesses.

    Also drop out does not sorely depended on poverty. Life styles also contribute. A child from a wealthy family that get involved and overwhelmed by social vices also drop out of school because of loss in concentration and focus.
    Thank you.
