Right to educationWhat is right to education?  This is basically the right for education for everyone that comes freely from the government in every nation. Moreover, this education is mandatory by the constitution of the nation. Such education facilitates the purpose of education for children aged between 6 to 14 years. It is unbelievable but true that there exist a larger percentage of masses from the teeming millions in the world, who do not know the basic things like reading, writing, and calculating. Such deprivation leads them to misery, poverty, and exploitation in the hands of unscrupulous people. The burgeoning number of child labor in Indian society is tell-tale about growing illiteracy in the masses that leads to degradation in the society.
