I believe the right to an education is a basic human right..what can we do to make that a reality?

Governor Brown just signed the Dream Act and that propelled me to think about how accessible education is in United States and around the world. Education shouldn't be something that only the privileged can afford. What can we do to give every child an opportunity to improve their lives through education?

  • Oct 10 2011: there is no right to steal money from productive citizens and give it to someone who does not contribute .

    education is not a right its a DUTY both from self and from the parents and more generally the people in general
    this can be achieved without stealing money from the people at the point of a gun and under treats of imprisonment

    you have a right to educate yourself ... NOT at expanses of others ...
