Education for All

We were thrilled to learn that India has enacted a law mandating free public education for all children ages 6 to 14.  According to the United Nations, this means that appoximately 8 million children – mostly girls – will finally now receive an education.  It’s hard to believe that such a basic right was denied to a group for so long; but the world just became a better place – at least for 8 million children in India.  Dr. King once stated that, “The arc of a moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”  As educators, we are about bending the arc.
