Letter to the Editor

 

Education: what do we want?

Right now there are three types of schools widely available: public schools, madressahs and the mushrooming fee-based private schools. Of the three the madressahs, often with some justification, have been vilified for infusing young minds with extremist ideas. But madressahs are at least able to provide children with three hot meals a day and a bed to sleep in while public schools often conduct their classes outside because they lack shelter.
