Education is more than a luxury; it is a responsibility that society owes to itself
Education is not a desire it is necessity that steers the personal growth of an individual, driving out darkness in life. Education is not just about opening a window of opportunities but building a perspective towards everything in one’s life. With every individual’s growth, education envisages social cohesion and economic growth. Education is the fundamental method of social progress and reform, through education society can formulate its own purposes, can organize its own means and resources, and thus shape itself with definiteness.
On 1st April, 2010 when the Government enacted the Right To Education (RTE) to make education a fundamental right of every child aging between 6-14 years with a vision in mind that no child shall be held back from the access of elementary education. Though the law brought millions of children in its ambit providing a basic education, the reality had altogether a different turnout. In most of the remote areas it is seen that the children itself prefer to go for jobs so that they can earn something from the labour. Even the parents consent to it and even force them to opt for job due to the financial problems and incognizance spread among the people about the importance of education. The primary education was made mandatory, so that every child under its confine would gain the basic of read and write and kindle their minds to study further.
Further the students enrolled from socio-economically disadvantage areas are comparatively low when it comes to higher education, the result of which is that they are left behind from pursuing their dream even after possessing proficient capabilities. The primary cause of which is the unequal distribution of opportunity or the increasing financial cost.
