Pap thinks getting an education is foolishness.

"Don't you give me none o' your lip," says he.  "You've put on considerable many frills since I been away.  I'll take you down a peg before I get done with you.  You're educated, too, they say—can read and write.  You think you're better'n your father, now, don't you, because he can't?  I'll take it out of you.  Who told you you might meddle with such hifalut'n foolishness, hey?—who told you you could?"
