yes Education is very important and has great benefits, but making it a human right…. Also, who is deciding “what IS education?”? Is education strictly classroom learning? what topics? etc.
This review of the United Nation’s Millennium Goals targeted to be achieved by 2015 are reviewed here, through an examination of the vicious cycle (from low access to education, to illiteracy, to poverty, and low socioeconomic status and back again) becoming virtuous.

You be the judge!
