Passage-1

Communities of parents concerned about their childrens education rely on three


arguments for active parental and community participation in that process. The first
argument and the one expressed most often and vociferously is the parents hold the
ultimate legal authority to make key decision about what and how their children learn and
to what extent the child should learn along side other children. The second argument is
that only a parent can truly know, the unique needs of the child including what
educational choices are best suited for the child. The third argument is that the parents are
more motivated by pride and ego and take what ever measures are needed to ensure that
their children receive the best possible education. Careful examination of these arguments
reveals that all the three arguments are specious. As for the first one where we to allow

has been criticized by his own people. “But my approach is in our interest”, he told times
magazine.
“Tibet is backward. Its a big land, rich in natural resources but we lack the technology or
expertise to exploit them if we remain within China. We might get greater benefit,
provided it respects our culture and environment.
The now 73 years old Dalai Lama leads a Spartan life rising at 3.30 in the morning to
