Nowadays, philanthropists and social activists worry about the gap between The Richest and The Poorest. Many intellectuals say that only education can improve the lives of down-trodden while reducing the gap between rich and poor.
I put my thoughts here on how education can be made accessible to All which will lead to the multi-fold rise in the Global GDP.
- Government must ensure private schools allocate 50% free seats in all classes with a set of regulations for the eligibility of a free seat in their institution. The financial status of every student must be kept confidential from the staff and their peers to avoid discrimination. Private schools which don't follow this rule must be penalized. The exponential rise in competition among students is ultimately beneficial for our society. Poor students must be reimbursed by the Government for the purchase of their school needs. Public schools can be closed in areas, where private schools are better than them, for saving costs to run the same.
- Free lunch for all students, irrespective, of their household income. This will keep children friendly with all their peers and keep them healthy with the nutrients from free lunches. This will keep all moms happy by saving them from their struggle to prepare lunch for their kids every day. Also, healthy children mean bright future for the Nation.
- The students who studied for free must pay back 50% of their first annual salary + 25% of the next 2 years annual salary as 'Guru Dakshin' to the Government after completing education. This will take time but will yield long-term gains for the society and the world.
