The Right to Education Act
The right to education is a universal entitlement to education, a right that is recognized around the world as a human right .
These rights are egalitarian, which means they are the same for EVERYONE
.
The right to education is not only a fundamental human right, but is also a means by which other human rights are achieved, such as freedom of expression and the right to adequate health care.

CHILDREN FROM NOT BEING
ABLE TO EXERCISE
THEIR RIGHT TO EDUCATION?
