Organised crime by The State

Often I find myself rarely agreeing with eminent educationist and Prof Krishna Kumar. But in the present case I have not option except to agree with him for what he has said very profoundly in this article:
  • Neither the United Nations convention on child rights nor the National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) can rescue him in that moment. In any case, the state cannot be of much help, for it is the state under whose authority and supervision the two adults beating him mercilessly have been selected and appointed to serve as teachers.
  • …It hardly matters whether they are serving in a government or a private school, for both kinds of schools draw the legitimacy of their access to the child’s mind and body from the powers entrusted to the state…
