Status defines a social value and prestige for a certain group of people. In my community, the highest value and prestige are an education and a good job. I grew up in a small city where there aren’t too many job opportunities. Therefore, it is very important to get a high education for young people because it is easier to compete in getting a good job. In fact, there people believe that if you have a good education, you can get a good job; if you have a good job, you can afford many material goods. In my neighborhood, those people are much esteemed, and they are imitated by others. I believe that a good education determines a high value of human as well.
