That depends all on what you are plotting. If you are after the  
amount of
work it was to go from uneducated to educated then a shallow slope is
preferable (with amount of work on the y axis, and degree of educated
on the x axis). Wether a shallow or steep slope is preferable is all  
dependent
on what one is actually measuring.
