One could argue that McCourt's time in school helped to shape him into the high school teacher that he was.  It gave him basic skills, sure, but also an appreciation for education, and the liberating effect it can have on someone raised in poverty.  No doubt that translates well to the high schools of New York City where McCourt ended up.
