Luxury and Education

Rahul Dev is said to be contesting in Bigg Boss only to fund his son’s education.
One can only imagine how difficult it’s for a commoner to fund their child’s education in this neoliberal era.
Because we have been conditioned to believe that a costly education is the norm and free education is luxury.
I guess free education is a basic human right because luxury would be to go for an overpriced substandard education.
This idea of free education seems a revolutionary concept because we have been made to forget that the education that our fathers and grandfathers received was almost free of cost.
But of course demanding free education makes you a burden on taxpayers’ and asking why education is so costly is sedition.
