Very much like how he articulates the need for every child to have a reason for learning, a narrative that gives them a reason to come to school and a hopefor the future. He calls it having a god to serve..small g. Could be God, but could also be family pride, work ethic, a passion, or just consumerism. But Postman says some gods are better than others at creating a desire for education.
