...can provide ‘Education for all’
Henry Fielding once said, “Public schools are the nurseries of all vice and immorality” … the statement is of assistance in slapping the claims of the reverential policy makers who vouch for public schools.
The United Nations promised “education for all” in the Millennium Developmental Goal (MDG) by 2015. Beats the wit out of anyone that how on Earth will it be possible with only 25% of all schools in Ghana being government schools, 34% of such schools in Lagos state of Nigeria and only 35% such schools in slum area of Hyderabad and equally contemptible percentage of government schools in other underdeveloped countries! So does that mean that the UN MDG is wearing that confident look only because it banks on the private schools? Private schools might charge more fees, but that again is only because they deliver quality. And why are private schools subjected to such badmouthing, anyway when even the not-so-well-to-do families choose private schools over government schools? Seriously, the umpteenth claims of “education for all” which try and promote public schools do not hold any water … because education in true sense owes gratitude to private schools only.
