More Money For Education

Good tidings. From DH:
“Education is an area of special focus in the 11th Plan. Education is our best hope for achieving inclusiveness and for spreading development to backward regions and marginalised groups,” Dr Singh said.
Dr Singh can say that again.

Food for thought:
Asserting that public education was indispensable, he said the deficiencies in basic education could not be met by the expansion of private schools, which “have not been able to play that role anywhere else in the history of the world.”
Of course, no self-respecting private school would go to even the least remote village.
