Assuming that Prime society is similar to ours, and a secondary school education is the bare minimum to do anything, it surprises me that Sarah never considered the value of getting an education. It makes sense that she might not value it as highly as others because of her experiences living on the streets, though. I imagine Rachael reinforced a lot of that stuff, too, because of her disdain for a formal education. Assuming her past as a child prodigy is still canon, Rachael probably has her own personal grief with getting an education.
What Sarah says in the fourth panel perplexes me most, though. She stresses that being uneducated can't be all that bad simply because Taffy -- someone who also doesn't have a formal education -- is loved by everyone. You'd think Sarah would have ambitions or goals of her own that would, in turn, lead her to wanting to get her diploma. Maybe this means she's so content living on the farm that she doesn't see beyond her own horizons, so to speak.
I'm anxious to see what Taffy has to say on the subject, and I could see her sharing, with Sarah, how she once wanted to be more than just a homemaker. Sarah's still young, so I can see how a lot of the talk of education's importance might go over her head, but she's, technically, an adult now and should consider what the future holes for her -- if she forgoes even a basic high school diploma.
