By BBN Staff: The National Committee for Families and Children (NCFC) issued a press release today expressing its concern and regret for the plight that children are currently facing as it says they are being deprived of one of their fundamental rights, which is explicitly stated in the Convention on the Rights of the Child; that of the right to a good quality education.

The NCFC quotes that Article 28 states that, “you have the right to a good quality education and be encouraged to go to school to the highest level you can.”
