Sir, The move to introduce the Free and Compulsory Education for Children Bill, 2003 in the winter session of Parliament is encouraging. The low attendance in schools is because parents either do not realise the value of education or are too poor to pay for their children's studies.
Lack of proper classrooms, uninspiring syllabus, corporal punishment and the attitude of some teachers, including those who sexually abuse students, play a vital role in keeping children away from schools. Unless these problems are solved, despite appointing inspectors and supervisory bodies, the Government cannot achieve its objective of seeing every child study in school.
