Why just girls? all poor students
need free books
By: Priya Mitra
The Maharashtra Government is offering free text books to girl students of aided high schools also. This is a wastage of public money, as the books are delivered only three to four weeks after the academic year begins. |
Meanwhile, parents end up buying the books for the children.
The government's exercise, thus, becomes unnecessary.
Is it a good idea to provide free books to the girl students whose parents can afford them? Instead, I would like to suggest that the government provide these free books to all students from the poor section of the society, regardless of whether they are boys or girls.
