As wrenching as it is for a mother to let go of her daughter, mandatory education in Evlantis begins for every girl the day after her seventh birthday celebration. The only exception is for children who are diagnosed with disabilities. Those children are allowed to stay at home. It is regarded as too cruel to separate those children from their mothers, and as well as too much of a challenge for mothers to trust others with the duties required to care for their special little one.
It is one of the sacred duties of the priestesses to educate the precious daughters of the Queendom. To be a teacher is one of the most prestigious jobs there is. Though Priestesses take vows of celibacy and cannot be mothers themselves, the status of Teacher confers all the benefits that becoming a mother bestows.
There are many buildings of education housed in the Religion Sector, including the Great Library. In their early years of education, young girls are taught reading, writing, herstory, and etiquette. In their middle years they are taught literature, science, advanced herstory and everything about birth and childcare. In the final years of education they concentrate on city government and sector life. All students are taught the basics of the specialties of each sector, then complete apprenticeships in each of the six sectors to help them choose which one to apply to at age fifteen when their mandatory education is complete.
Education in the Religion Sector can continue beyond age fifteen in for some women. Physicians can take courses to increase their understanding of disease and treatments. There are advanced degrees offered in the Religion sector for farmers, journalists, and those who care for animals. There are also classes offered for the residents of the Religion Sector for those who wish to rise in the hierarchy of the ranks of the Priestesses as well as for those who wish to become Teachers.
There are highly specialized courses of advanced education for women who wish to excel in the fields of government, the arts, fashion, or the military also. Those advanced degrees must be earned, respectively, in the Government sector, the Arts sector, the Livestock sector and the Soldier sector. To better oneself by getting a higher education is valued in the Queendom of Evlantis.
