    There are a few girls who, by the time they are “educated,” forget their old childish desires to help the world and to play with poor little girls “who haven’t playthings.” What is the meaning of educated word in the sentance

    They put the quotation marks there is because it is more metaphorical then realistic. I hope this helps! :D

    A metaphor is a figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest a resemblance. For example: Her tears flowed like a river of melancholy.
