If you had thoroughly read the piece written by Fr. Robert Plews you would have got an answer to the question you were blindly looking for.

Education is a human right as stated by Fr. Robert and must be obtained but not through Free education because it is impractical and hard to sustain. Firstly, there are only limited funds in the government coffer. Now, where is the government going to get all its money to cater for this expensive exercise? If itís going to institute free education, then what about the other infrastructural developments that the country is in sheer need of. For example, roads, bridges, hospitals, building of new schools etc. Do you think the government is going to half empty the government coffer for free education and see the country deteriorating in other most need infrastructural developments? I donít think so.

Free education is only for a short term and would never be sustained in the long run. It would only result in parents being lazy. Parents should also contribute into the education of their children. What we least expect our government to do now is to improve all these infrastructural developments. For example, if there are good roads (linkages), bridges, schools and hospitals etc in all parts of the country then the people would have enough money to pay for their childrenís education because they would be self sufficient through the sale of cash crops. Thus, the government has to spend money to make people have a sustainable living and not having a dependency syndrome. However, the government can still subsidize education as it normally does. Accept the fact that nothing is free in this world.

"the rich get richer, the poor get poorer"

Education should be equal, not just for some that have money, and regardless of whether there are good roads, bridges for people to earn a sustainable income, life will always be tough for some and easy for others and that is not because parents are lazy.

Sorry, I do think that education should be "free" and "equal" and maybe if the government where to stop all the corruption, there would be enough money for free education as well as providing most needed infrastructural development.
