    Wow. Wonder what the thumps down are for. The one major issue with our education is the number of drop outs, especially in the rural areas. It’s huge. In urban areas, the education at private school has become a business of sorts. The money involved just to get an admission sometimes is an outrage.

    Optimism is fine but let’s be real, overpopulation is not something that should be romanticized as a boon. So many talented young folks here who can’t get good jobs because of the overpopulation. We need to get this issue under control to ensure a quality life for everyone. Just my two cents.
