The class-divide!

Right to Education could just manage to put poor students with rich students in the same class. But, will the class-divide vanish?

The objective of a school is to break this divide and create a feeling of equality. Do you ever remember asking your classmate their religion, how much their parents earned, and so on. At least when I went to school these questions never came up. Now I realize that children of prominent builders, and politicians studied in my school with me. Also the parents of my classmates included people like me whose parents worked in banks, private companies, and shops.

The objective of a true school is to impart education to its students and not divide them on religion, caste, class, and other ways to sift people.
