Where they burn books, they will in the end also burn people

There's not much I can think to write about burning (except maybe that it was the topic of my first book). Instead, let's wind down the month with some scary pictures.

  29. ABSTRACT - Educating the child has always been very important to parents. The Poro and Bondo Secret Societies were institutions where Sierra Leonean children used to undergo training among the Themnes, Kpa Mendes, Sherbros and Konos. These secret societies were very instrumental for the total development of the child. Both secret societies were social and educational institutions which helped to preserve societal norms and values; they served as institutions for higher learning. History reveals that there were no formal schools where children were educated. Parents sent their children to either craftsmen or have them in farms without learning any skills. The introduction of formal education started in the colony after the arrival of ex-slaves in the eighteenth century. This has brought about dramatic changes in the country's educational system.

As iterated in: "In ancient shadows and twilights where childhood had strayed, the world's great sorrows were born And its heroes were made. In the lost boyhood of Christ was betrayed" therefore, education is compulsory, compulsory education is one of the essentials for stability of democracy, social integration and to eliminate social evils. Thus Right to education Act is one such step taken by the government to fulfill its responsibility in achieving the aforesaid goals. This paper does not provide very deep information pertaining to the act, but only those provision which have been much debated. It further suggests certain changes which are possible and if taken into account will for sure result in the betterment of the act. In this paper a comparison has been made, between the provisions of the act, its implementation and effects with those real life problems, by way of a background story being narrated by a young boy about his childhood experiences. Although this Act has been legislated with a bonafide intention by the government but still it seems to be a fraud in guise of welfare.
