Every children practice different rights. The right of education is a basic human right that everyone should have. Free education is provided by our government at different levels to achieve education for all. Education should be affordable to all, with proper facilities, textbooks and supplies provided to students at no additional costs. Our government also provides free and compulsory primary and secondary education accessible to all. Free higher education usually comes to students in the form of scholarships and grants. Alternative Learning System (ALS) program shall be intensified for individuals who have not completed primary education.

The right of education is fundamental human right but many children and adults deprived of educational rights which result of poverty. Because of poverty, some parents are held responsible for not sending their children to school. On the other hand, many successful individual came from the poor family. Hardship inspires them to dream big and strive to reach that point. Poverty serves as challenge to them to overcome and to have a successful life.

Education can help us to be a knowledgeable one. Through that knowledge we should find wisdom to be a better person. Our parents are the one who will motivate our children to study and dream. Government, Civil Society, NGO’s, parents, school personnel, and media must work together to help every child to realize their right to education.
