Freedom in Education

so we have this public forum, together with Global launch of the 2007 Economic Freedom of the World report.
Minister Kamal Nath did the official thing. next day it was covered in atleast 3 English language papers that I saw. so I guess we can claim it was successful.
at the freedom in education forum there was one particular study that caught my attention....about private vs public schools and teachers in Pakistan. some astonishing things like 40% teacher absenteism at pulic schools!! huh?!?! and I always thought it was the students that ran away from school!
many other evidence that should now make people realise that government infact are not better at providing services...and infact the private sector can and DOES provide the so-called welfare benefits to the population. the market does work.
