SCHOOLS are only buildings, and policies are empty words. If that could bring any change, then I assure everyone that there could have not been a single illiterate person in this world.

My point is that the educational standard can be improved with what we already have without wasting more money on buildings and more time on framing policies. All that we need is our education being free from corrupt ministers to corrupt peons.
