Is Education a Privilege or a Right?

From your readings and experiences, should schooling be a right or privilege? What impact has student, family, and societal rights had on the influence of education? What role should choice play in public education (i.e. charter schools, private schools, online education, etc.)? Your response must be a minimum of 300 words. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.
Every person is entitled to the right to education is recognized as a human right and is understood to establish an entitlement to free, I learning experience with complete access to higher education, and a responsibility to provide basic education for individuals who have not completed primary education. Parents only want the best for their children so they might send their child to a private school or it might happen that the child is chosen from a pool of students to be enrolled in to a charter school, rather than public schools. Of course there nothing wrong with the public sector it’s just that society has parents believing one way better educates than the other. I feel that from my readings and experiences education is becoming more and more expressed as a right within our country today. I believe that earning is the most powerful tool in the world. The more you know the better you get along in the world. Unless you have a decent education jobs will be scarce and you will struggle for the rest of your life trying to make ends meet. You don't have to be rich to survive, but you sure do need your education to stay ahead of the tax man, hunger, and ending up out on the streets of the city. Education is wonderful and with every turn of it you learn something interesting.
