Like in line 66 a women says her husband made her daughter write a essay or other in line 77-78 Jennifer Alsip says she didn’t spy on her daughters but told them she would if they give her a reason to, that’s pretty fair as
Along with in the text it also says “In fourth grade I embarked upon a grandiose reading program. “Give me the names of important books I would say to startled teachers. They soon found out that I had in mind adult books. I ignored their suggestions of anything I suspected was written for children” So he also tries to write books above his level which really did not get him “educated” as he says `he really did not understand a thing , which really didn't make him educated
