It used to be that you could be both economically successful and help others, and there are still people who do that. In fact, if you work hard to be
the best person you can be, prosperity tends to find you. Why should you be ashamed of that, and why should society shame you if it happens?
Money and prosperity are only bad things when you put them on a pedestal and make them the most important things in your life.
And no, it is not school's place to teach you values. That responsibility lies with your parents. When school starts trying to do it, it smacks of
indoctrination. What if the values of the school clash with the values of the home?
There was, in fact, a society in Germany who felt that the schools needed to enforce/teach consistent values to teach the children who they were in
order to change the culture, too.
