Homework Help: Literature

Is "The Narrative of the life of Frederick Douglass" important to the American educational process in any way? Could someone explain? thanks.

There is an idea in the story that education enlightens, not a wrong idea in my experience. ....The truth shall make you free....

When Douglass was refused an education and was treated brutally, he lost interest in learning. I think that message can be applied today. Children who live in an abusive environment often must use all of their energies to merely survive. They don't have the energy for an academic education.
