Education is everything in the Logan family. Mama is very strict on her kids regarding this. It helps that she is a teacher at the black school. Education is the only way out for the Logan kids, it is the only way they can break the bonds of their heritage.
Your other question is pretty involved. Suffice to say that church and education was afforded an intensity. They were the cornerstones of Logan parenting 101. They kept everyone spiritually and intellectually grounded.
