It is countable in Danish.
While this sentence is a bit dubious and I will correct the English translation, "education" is definitely a countable noun. Consider:
- "The applicants had comparable educations."
- "Their educations differed greatly because of how much money their parents could afford"
Kindergarten to high school tend to be fairly inexpensive unless you choose to go to a private school at which point you will be looking at tuition fees. That is at the option of the parents. College is also an option as is a trade school for after high School. At this point yes there is going to be tuition and prices for books and activities etc. However you can receive free government grants for grants that are set up if you qualify to the particular program you asked for and there are government loans at inexpensive percentages as well as other loans and scholarships that are only paid back if you drop out of classes. There are ways to reach the expense that you need to get through college. I will see young mother a single parent and I got government assistance I even managed to get assistance paying my babysitter when my children were young so I could go. We also car pooled to make the ride cheaper.
