In this 21st century, the population of the world is progressing rapidly with the strength of democracy. Everybody gets equal opportunity to become successful, which is free enterprise. Technology and science is a back support for education. Several people in this world need education. This has to be supported by the government where people live.
Unequal availability of education to people will create problems because the uneducated are unable to gain like the educated. To solve problems happening due to uneducation, the government has to spend lot of time and money.
The money and time spent to solve problems can be used for free education. It is much easier than facing difficulties which happen when the population is not educated. The government should think the cost of education is an investment. Such investments have good returns in the long run. Proper education with moral values of how to live a peaceful life prevents negative thoughts which make criminals, terrorists, and wars in this world. The uneducated people psychologically feel that the educated are taking undue advantage of them. Educated human beings are a productive force. Any economist would guarantee a productive force will increase the economic growth of a country. Many brilliant human brains are hidden due to poverty. A person with a very good brain invented the mail system for Internet. The example is Hotmail. Today that organization is able to give employment to thousands of educated human beings. This proves education can make people earn money and the government can get taxes from them. When the economy is good because of plenty of production, things become cheap including educated people services. Here the role of free education helps increasing the economy.
Education basically is a human right. A government elected by the people has the responsibility to respect the human rights. To get free education is also a human right. Majority of people who are poor in the world, vote to form a government. They have the right to expect the government to give free education because they have voted to elect administrators to form a government. This cannot be denied. The government can generate lot of income to spend for free education. That is why educated people are voted to form a government. Many educated people think anything given free is not respected by the people who get it and they do not give any value for it. But when education is offered free it becomes an investment and it will surely make lot of income through plenty of ways.
Free education is given to all the poor people in a country like India. This has made plenty of educated people in that country. People who got such free education are making lot of money which is giving plenty of income for the government from income tax. India, today giving free education is No.1 country doing software with plenty of people working. This is a proof that free education will make the country earn lot of money. Infact billions of dollars are made by India as foreign exchange, for the last twenty years because of free education for the poor. It has created economic growth wonders. It is happening even today as of now.
