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 24 2011: I would love to elaborate, but am short on time at the moment. When you get a chance, look into the Resource Based Economy. It covers much more than free education; it solves most of our current global issues, some much more dire than education at the moment. So yes, I agree that free education is a right. I don't think people like Einstein and Tesla dedicated their lives to advance human knowledge so that a few schools could make money; I think they wanted everyone to know what they discovered. I would like my contributions to be the same; available to all. I support the Resource Based Economy for many reasons, but this will answer the problem of how to accomplish implementing education as a right, look at the technology at www.thevenusproject.com and find out the details and join the conversation at www.thezeitgeistmovement.com
