Solution

The purpose of education is to make children fit for life. Some people believe that free education will solve all the problems we face today. I beg to differ. Free education has created unemployment among the educated and a false sense of dignity. They consider it beneath their dignity to engage in manual labor. But manual work is necessary. If crops are not grown and streets are not cleaned we cannot live. We might be able to dispense with intellectual work, but not with manual work.
