Myths of Privatopia4 min read 25 Dec 2013, 06:40 PM IST
India's education will not improve till our public education system improves. There is no other way out
There is a land called Privatopia. There, Leviathan is but a distant memory, of the beast that withered away. It’s a clean and healthy land. Children grow up there with great education. Gleaming roads connect all places. Transport works without a glitch. The water is sweet, germ-free, delivered to every house. Sanitation works perfectly. High-tech hospitals take care of the few who are ill. Peace in the land and its security are maintained by the ever-alert forces. All this has been made possible after the beast was helped to wither away by the dynamic forces of competition and markets were encouraged to take over all these services. The glorious day when other essential services like legislative representation, justice and parenting will also be offered by the efficient forces of markets, is not far away.
