Education was a big thing in Ancient Egypt. Boys started learning their father's job when they were four. When they were older they were expected to do the same occupation as their father. Girls and boys both attended school together. They studied reading, writing, and math. Children who were going to be lawyers, scribes, or doctors went to a special school were they studied hieroglyphics. When girls grew up they took to tending the home. Ancient Egypt was a more communistic economy.
