Prasad, a parent of Jawahar Vidyalaya, Chennai: Right to Education/25% reservation for underprivileged? Does it really help children to get socially integrated or Does it deepen the division of rich and poor?
Atul Goyal, a parent of Gokuldham High School, Mumbai
We have to understand what does it actually means, division of rich and poor. Does it means how much money does one have? If yeas then, Beggar is poor. But if a Beggar has 1 crore and if he still Begging than he is rich. If a family of criminal background, if has no money, he is poor, and if he has money so they are rich. Does this actually means division of rich and poor? According to me NO NO and NO!. One who is cultered, and can also adjust oneself in the society at large, and one who has wider vision is rich. And all others are poor.
Regarding reservation if it is based on poverty criteria, its useless, if a family cannot afford, but is a respectable member of society and can adjust in the society, then they should be given admission as per the criteria, irrespective of person father or mother is a watchman, milkman, liftmen etc etc… This has to be debated at large further for maintaining that criteria.
