But, said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday, the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act aims to ensure that all children "irrespective of gender and social category have access to education." It was passed last year.http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/asiapcf/04/01/india.education/index.html

millions more go to school
A new law has passed India last year. That the government must provide education to children for free. This means that about 8-10 million is estimated the amount of children will now go to school. The government is expected to spend about 35 billion dollars or 1.5 trillion rupees (Indian currency). I think it is great that children now can go to school in India and that more children can be well educated in school and live healthy and wealthy lives,because as we learn in the renaissance is that education can save you. I am not saying that all the problems in India, but education can help children in India get a better living standard.
