I may not have made my point well enough. I actually see people with the jobs the factionless take as crutial to our society and respect them as much as a physician. Why, they are often tough jobs and if someone has great work ethic, shows up, and does a good job, that is as important to me as any job that requires further education.
My point was a student reading the description of the factionless knowing full well they are probably headed toward that for their future, may not want to continue reading any further, particularly if they struggle to read and hate to read in the first place. Nothing like the book you are reading to confirm what most of society and schools these days are telling kids. You need to go to college to be anything. I was just thinking what the kids that are require to read this book must think when they read that part and don't want to be doing it in the first place.
Now, I know that it probably will go somewhere and will most likely improve the view of the factionless because it is rare to find a book that would do otherwise. But I'm thinking of this from a struggling student's POV.
