Is Education is Business
23.Aug.2007. - Indian culture doesn’t allow us to do business in the name
of education, but in the capital, the heart of Indian culture and heritage
some rich businessman are establishing public schools to get huge amount
of donations and fees in the name of education.
Who is responsible ?
The Government---------------?

The Public----------------------?
The System--------------------?

Children of poor people are ignored by the so called public school in 
Delhi despite of so many court orders to give them equal opportunity
in the field of education.The Government doesn’t dare to take quick
and necessary steps against them. Why? God knows.  
When most of the poor children are not getting proper education, they
become bound to look at their reverse side of their life and are doing
the negative aspects of their life as begging, theft and alcoholism.
Here is a Govt. order to implement High Court's Order of free ship in Public Schools as
Below------(as dated 27/04/2004 by the directorate of education, Delhi)

1. All schools will grant minimum 20% freeship (which includes Tuition Fees, PTA or any other fees/funds/charges of any kind related to teaching-learning) to the children of the weaker sections of society w.e.f. 1st of May 2004.

However, the present annual parental income limit is Rs. 48,000/- for boy students and Rs. 60,000/- for girl students. Further, the parents of the child should have been staying in Delhi for last 5 years.
