The majority of children in India are stuck in a public school system that prevents them from reaching their full
potential. The government sets restrictions not only on the schools that are in its system, but also the ones
that are trying to liberate themselves. Non-governmental organizations and individuals funding charter schools
are cut off from any support from the government yet are still expected to follow its rules. The children are
eager and the teachers are dedicated, but the government is indifferent to the point of negligence. Something
must be done about this; education is a right, not a privilege.
