John Pilger on Public Education

Next to feeding and nourishing ourselves, our right to free education, provided by the state, is our most important human right. People know this; they watch children from low income families, given the same facilities as those in privates schools, grow in every way. It is only when those same facilities are denied that children fall back. Watch that happening and you witness a political and social crime. Teachers in state schools represent a vital source; many ought to be our heroes. We should support them and the true civilisation that state education represents.
