Jiram has criticized the adults who are benefiting from the government’s free-tuition-fee. I am totally against this criticism.
We all know that access to formal education is one of the rights of the citizens regardless of age, gender, race and religious differences.
Education (formal) is mostly demanded by the people of this nation. I am arguing Jiram’s criticism for the following reasons:
1. Informal Education Services are not equally and effectively provided. For example, FODE. This mode of education service is the country does not deliver equal or quality education services. I have seen parents and students complaining about FODE not delivering appropriate services to the students. FODE materials such as student resource book, transcripts/certificates are mostly delayed
2. Education is for everyone regardless of age, gender, race and religious difference. As far as I know, rights to education is one of the goals of the UN Declaration of Human Rights
3. Government of this country is the government of all citizens of this country. Whatever services whether in education, health, agriculture or whatsoever, all people must have the privilege to access and use them and free tuition fee education is one those services provided by the government to the people.
