Weird Comment : Times of India

Here is an picture of a comment posted on an article on Times of India. Well, even after repeated mails to monitor and moderate such types of comments, they seem to be enjoying all these. For me, it's actually a bit surprising as to how can such a well known newspaper don't care about such things.

Very disappointing.

Right to education - Awaaz Do

"All children 6 to 14 years old have the right to free and quality education under the recently passed Right to Education Act"

Doesn't it sound nice? The RTE Act requires that all the private schools to reserve 25% of the seats for poor and the under-privileged. It also specifies similar norms for the government schools.

This is a big and commendable step the government has taken towards empowering the children of India. Few countries in the world have such a provision to ensure both free and children-centered, child-friendly education.

Start speaking NOW to make a difference. It's not the job of the government only, but it needs the helping hand of everyone of us. Come and join the UNICEF's AWAZ DO Movement. We have a long way to go. 8 million children are not in school.
