Poverty is a subject that is not only a big challenge for developing countries but all the developed countries too. Even after 99.99% literacy rate, they have not been able to fight with this. In an interview, Tony Blair’s education secretary, Mr. Major rightly said that we should continue our learning throughout our lives. He even marked that “The necessity for a ladder out of poverty is through education only.” Read http://www.standard.co.uk/news/education/john-major-use-education-to-fight-poverty-9588788.html But my point of concern is that even after so much effort by the government & other organizations, why has poverty not been able to eradicate fully. Is it possible to do it or not? Or it can only be reduced and not eradicate fully? What other steps should be taken? What is your take on this? Do share.
