 right of childrenMangalore : The greatest contribution which  one can make to the nation is  to help others gain education, said Dr Umesh Aradhya, President of Karnataka State Commission for Protection of Child Rights.

Participating in an  interaction programme on ‘The right of children to free and compulsory education (RTE) Act of 2009’ held at SDM College  on March 12, Tuesday, he said  RTE was enforced in order to see that every child got good education in these days when education was costlier.

Prof Mahesh Nayak  regretted the fact that the number of students getting admitted to  government schools has reduced and said it was an unwelcome development. Parents are more interested in sending their children to private schools, he added.

Asha Nayak, Chairman of Child Welfare Committee, Vasudev Sharma, a child rights activist, Ramila Shekar, member of Juvenile Justice Board and others spoke.
